Compulsory Measures

The Pauly Friedman Art Gallery presents “Compulsory Measures,” a group show curated by Reni Gower, former professor of art at Virginia Commonwealth University. In this exhibition eight artists from around the country demonstrate how repetition and ritual can inspire intense focus and clarity. The result is a show that strikes some viewers with its vibrant colors and invites others to get immersed in meticulous detail.
