From the Curator:
The exhibit was inspired by long-lasting friendships and professional relationships. It brings together two uniquely creative communities that like the artists themselves hold a deep personal importance to me. I feel as though each of the artists share very little with each other, yet their works combined meld and transform colors into shape and dissolve reason into emotions.
