Opening Reception
9/1 from 5:00 - 7:00pm, Clough-Hanson Gallery:
‘Fathom’ intertwines notions of
ritual, alchemy, and formal exploration. It is an exhibition that
surveys through sculpture and video fundamental human
curiosities, including phases of change, units of measure and the
persistence of transformation—all of which shape cultural and
personal mythos.
