date. january 7 thru february 19

opening. january 7 from 5 to 8pm

Artworks by Sheila Ghidini and Anne McGuire

 

Working within self-imposed structures, Anne McGuire and Sheila Ghidini take different paths to finding their muse.  The pairing of their art creates a fascinating dialectic. The works revolve around each other as in a dance, creating a choreography that despite each dancer’s distinct style, comes together to form a seamless duet.
