Connie Mississippi: Circle of Time
May 4 – July 21, 2018

Curated by Miriam Seidel

Connie Mississippi is known for the powerful and graceful turned-wood sculptures that position her among the important artists who have emerged through the contemporary wood-turning movement.

Opening this spring in the Gerry Lenfest gallery, this exhibition is an unusual form of retrospective, bringing together for the first time examples of her notable turned-wood sculptures, along with paintings, newer sculptures and original artist books that illuminate her more well-known work. Together these works make a larger whole, unified by the artist’s longstanding interests in dreams, nature, and spirituality.

First Fridays | May 4, June 1, July 6 | 5 – 8 PM
Gallery talk with the artist and curator | May 4 | 6:00 – 7:00
