​Current Exhibit

"FACTS OF LIFE, VOL I" -- Glória Langer
June 10 - July 16

Langer describes this series of paintings as a reflection on a new reality of fast paced images and information.  In a society where almost everything is about image and surface, she hopes to convey a window of introspection and analysis.

A First Friday reception with the artist will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on July 1. Live music will be performed by Dale Yeoman and Johnny Carrasco. The reception is supported by the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library.
