Upcoming Exhibition

Sharon Wolpoff: Wherever I Turn I See Light

Exhibition Dates: Postponed

Sharon Wolpoff is a realist painter who experiments with the use of illumination to accentuate her oil paintings, which gives them a geometrical quality. She expanded her understanding of color through studies of tapestry and bead weaving and has employed her artistic talents as a jewelry designer, printmaker, and painter.
