Cass Corridor: Connecting Times:

Simone DeSousa Gallery is pleased to present Cass Corridor: Connecting Times, a series of exhibitions of past Cass Corridor artists curated by Nancy Mitchnick.

Simone DeSousa Gallery is pleased to present a special summer feature at our EDITION space: “Too Much Not Enough,” featuring prints, ceramics, and sculptural assemblages by Andrea Eckert and Nathan Tonning.

The work included in the exhibition is a series of reflections on control, compromise, and surrender in relation to the shared operation of a household. Ailing parents, temporary pets, and daily routine become manifest as pattern, language, and image.

The works will be on view from July 15 through August 19, with an opening reception on Saturday, July 15, from 6 to 9 pm.
