Opening Reception: Thursday, June 23, 6:30-8:30

Art viewers and gallery hoppers once again packed the floor space at the Long View Gallery for tonight's opening reception of Creative Processe. In terms of outlook (as well as subject and technique), the work collected for this exhibit really jumps around. That which holds it together, as suggested by the title of the show, was slow to reveal itself. Yet by the time I left (and after a number of zoom-in's), I had quite a few surprises which brought me in to the work of all four artists. Eve Stockton's woodcut prints, however, and possibly due to memetic qualities, had the most immediate impact.
