Join us for a talk by Stephanie Guyet, and conversation with Karen Gibbons, Tom Bovo and Gail Flanery, on their exhibition, Merge, in the Project Space.

Each artist has incorporated new elements into their habitual way of working, albeit in different media. Gibbons uses sculptural forms, Bovo photography and Flanery printmaking.  The artists push limits conceptually and visually so that their work might begin to merge into a single experience for those who visit the 440 Project Space this month.
