    Women & Their Work: The Future Is Behind Us

    Rachel Wolfson Smith focuses our attention on the essential and grounding effect of beauty in nature, portraying constructed, intricate, and imagined landscapes, creating "an antidote to the imbalance many of us experience as we lurch from impulse to impulse in our tech-laden, consumer-driven, modern existence." Yes – an antidote to that, and a paean to the possibilities of graphite wielded by a brilliant hand and mind.
    Opening reception: Sat., Aug. 13, 7-9pm
