1st Saturday – October
October 7, 10:00 am - 7:00 pm
Gallery Opening Reception from 4-7pm:
October Exhibition Opening in The Founders Gallery Apocalypse Now, paintings by Bethany Bennett and Straun Wagner. It is often the case that great art challenges the viewer. A reckoning of thought is forced. Such is Apocalypse Now, featuring the work of artists Bethany Bennet and Straun Wagner. In our polarized society, emotions and divisions run deeper than ever before. Some are energized by the debate. Others are beset by feelings of woe and gloom. Bennet and Wagner follow the second path. You won’t come away with a neutral view on this exhibition. Don’t shy away from the challenge. View Apocalypse Now and choose to join the artists’ view of the state of the world or choose the sunnier path. Opening from 4-7pm. Artist’s Talk, 6pm. Exhibition through October 29.
