Opposites Attract

Opposites Attract Header

Opposing forces shape our reality in ways that are both readily apparent as well as hidden. Artwork included in this exhibit explores contradictions and affinities: Yin and Yang, the irresistible force versus the immovable object, black and white, and other types of opposites.

Gail M. Brown is an Independent Curator whose interest is to enhance visibility and education about contemporary craft within the larger visual arts community. She trained as a printmaker at the Philadelphia College of Art where she identified her own connection to process and media while exploring etching and lithography. She curates focused exhibitions which share exceptional work from a national/international body of mature and mid-career artists and introduces potent ideas and forms by younger makers.
