News & Recent Exhibitions
500x Annual Members Show
This exhibition is comprised of recent works by Dallas-based artists Jessie Barnes and Scott Bell. The viewer is invited to explore notions of focus, distraction, and unrest through dubious gazes and representations of the struggle to be present. The act of standing watchful – of guarding what is real – keeps us grounded, aware, and apt to rise.
