In The Kerlin Gallery: Emerging Visions

Creative York’s newest exhibit “Emerging Visions” features a stunning assortment of artworks from a new generation of artists, all currently enrolled in undergraduate arts programs at US colleges and universities. “Emerging Visions,” opens on January 30 with an opening reception from 6-8pm. The exhibit continues through March 14. For more information and artist roster, click HERE .
Bloom by Rachel Aubrey is just one of the wonderful works you will see in "Emerging Visions."
In The Project Space: "Playing With Paper" continues.

Enter a magical world of floating paper balls, far removed from the everyday hustle-bustle. Simply experience art for art’s sake – joyful, beautiful, fun! Each one of the hundreds of paper bundles has been created by hand from recycled paper. Together, these little wads twist in the air currents and form shadows that create a playful, ever-changing environment.

Both exhibits will be on display from January 30 through March 14, 2020.

Gallery Hours: Mon-Sat 10 am - 2 pm.
