About the reception and the band:
Featuring the works and studios of Imurj Members: Holly Nicolazzo, Patricia Wilson, Stephen Cefalo, Jess Porta, and Olivia Taylor Hockaday.
The Imurj Main Gallery is transformed into 5 spaces for visual artists who are Imurj Members to INHABIT. We are featuring the artist as the installation as these artists work in public view throughout the exhibition run. Exhibitors may work in their designated spaces during Imurj hours of operation throughout the month. The exhibit allows the public a visualization of each artist’s unique studio habits and practices, demonstration of their skills, and an opportunity to come into the intimate work environment as the artists create their product. Throughout the month we explore the word “inhabit” through artists taking over both the intimate and large spaces at Imurj to fill it with their essences, their artists’ activities, and their personas.
In the Cafe Gallery: Works from the Nautical Nonsense series by Carbo
In the Local Art Shop: Hammered copper and porcelain jewelry by Lou Horton, Cards and Prints by Elizabeth Galecke, and dreamcatchers by Klara Doyle.
Join the community for an opening art reception of the exhibits in the Imurj Main Gallery and the Imurj Cafe Gallery. The Imurj Local Shop also features smaller 2D and 3D works of art for sale.
