Trusses is an exhibition of works by contemporary artists and architects that explores how buildings resonate through their uses and their intersections with other forms of culture. Bridging aesthetic and experiential languages, architecture is set in dialogue with painting, sculpture, pottery, writing, photography and film.
Saturday, August 20, 11 am

This summer, we are asking our members and friends to make a special investment in the gallery and support our goal of presenting artwork in the best possible light. We are planning to install a new lighting system to make our public exhibition space more luminous, beautiful, and flexible. We are getting close to our fundraising target, but need help from the community to realize our vision.
Giving to the Gallery is simple—download and mail a donation form, visit in person, or donate securely via PayPal. All donations over $10 will receive a tax receipt. We’ll give you an Illuminate button and will recognize you at a VIP event in January 2017 to celebrate in our renovated space and launch the gallery’s 40th anniversary year. Thank you for your consideration!
