IAO Main Gallery
Opening Reception: June 16
June 15 - July 21
Join us for a beautiful fusion of works by artists Mery Mcnett and Nick Lillard.
What exactly are emotions, intelligence and imagination? How do neurons store information? What is consciousness? Mery Mcnnett explores these questions through a series of works dubbed "Medulla"
Sculptor Nick Lillard explores the tactile and functional qualities of inanimate objects while simultaneously attempting to portray human and/or animal personality through the creation of lamp-like objects that exude warmth and light.
