Delta Axis: November's delights

Friday, November 9
Opening reception 6-9 p.m.
Delta Axis @ Marshall Arts, 639 Marshall Avenue
Exhibition Dates: November 9 – December 15, 2007
Gallery Hours: Saturdays 1-5 p.m.

Crave features five artists who recognize the process of craving, stemming from the primal urge to seek satisfaction, as a creative force in itself – a force capable of propelling their work into fresh observations, new methodologies and concepts. Artists, intuitively and through practiced perception, are especially aware of personal cravings and cognizant of the cravings of their audience. The exhibition features work by Joel Carreiro, Betsy Chaffin, Amanda Sparks, Thomas Weaver, and Brian Wood.
