Portable Museums and Other Kinds: Works by Jeffrey Abt

August 22nd—September 16th*

The transient nature of visual art exhibitions is exemplified in Abt’s pristinely crafted miniature galleries in the form of portable “carry on” luggage.  The objects presented mimic the nature of gallery work—unpacking, installing, packing, and traveling onward to the next show.  The result of all that labor, however, provides viewers with a fleeting yet, often, stimulating, experience.   

                                                                               

Artist Talk: Thursday September 15th, 7pm

Reception: Friday September 16th, 6-9pm
