SUGS Opening Reception: Baring Investigation
Parallax Gallery, 280 S. Columbus Dr., room 122
Working in the studio is rarely a magical, spontaneous process. Although it takes many forms and often is not present in the finished work, research is a necessary and driving force in many artists’ practices. Baring Investigation is a collection of work that makes us rethink what the word “research” can mean. The exhibition will run through December 16.
