April 25th – May 26th, 2019
Opening w/ Panel Discussion on Sunday, April 28th
Reception to Follow until 6pm
"2 0 2 0" – What do these numbers call to mind? Impeccable eyesight? Fully knowledgeable hindsight? A prophetic projection of foresight? Or perhaps a particular year in the near future that looms large in the mind's eye? Artists enable us to frame history with clarity and perception, to dream and conceptualize, to visualize futures, preparing us for what may come, or helping us manifest worlds we look to create. This year’s juried exhibition features forty-seven artists – living both locally and nationally, and working in a wide variety of media – who offer their own unique perspective. KLG invites you to explore the array of artistic vision.

Panel Discussion, "Dialogue in a Time of Discord," Sunday, April 28th @ 3pm
Before the opening reception, please join us in a discussion moderated by Leah Andelsmith of The Arts Paper. Leah writes: “Anchored by the artwork on view, the conversation will focus on how we can bridge divergent perspectives and what we can all gain by trying on another’s eyes. What are our challenges, what are our points of connection, and how can we sight our path to the future?”
