Exhibit: Adam Katseff and Conner Green at Pictura Gallery

11:00 am
Pictura Gallery (122 W. 6th St.)
http://www.picturagallery.com/index.htm

Pictura Gallery presents two new exhibits by Adam Katseff and Conner Green, running until December 27.

“How do you map and understand the essence of a space? Adam Katseff and Conner Green present us with a void. On one hand we have a world that simmers to the surface from a blanket of black. On the other, we have a tangle of lines that writhe and snake their way through empty whiteness. This visual rabbit hole draws us in and demands an intimate gaze. The images seem to suggest that if we look close enough we might be able to decipher the pith of these spaces.”

Gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday: 11 am to 7 pm. Closed Sunday and Monday.
