Visual Arts Gallery announces exhibition opening Jan. 26
SFCC’s Visual Arts Gallery presents the exhibition, “Paintings and Poetry: The Center Cannot Hold,” which opens from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, January 27. The exhibition features the work of artists Jane Shoenfeld and Bill Sortino.
The two diverse contemporary artists will offer a showcase of paintings imbued with a deep connection to poetry. “This is such an exciting show that will resonate with artists and poets alike,” said Director of the Visual Arts Gallery, Linda Cassel. “While the artists are quite different, they both are so gifted and dedicated to immersing themselves in the full artistic process of painting, as well as writing poetry.”
