New Exhibition Highlighting Color & Form on Display Now

View Online and at the Block Gallery

April 6 through July 22, 2022

Martha Clippinger + Jerstin Crosby: color/form, curated by Ashlynn Browning, showcases the artworks of Martha Clippinger and Jerstin Crosby, whose paintings, textiles, and sculptures boldly celebrate color and form. While they both use a vibrant, saturated palette and share a common aesthetic of organic/geometric hybrids, each artist navigates their creative process in very different ways.
