Beginning with simple, reductive forms, the artwork featured in this group exhibition, made by Diana Cooper, Tara Donovan, Charles Goldman, Jason Rogenes, Jane South, and Phoebe Washburn, draws attention to the minutia of our material environment. Through the artists' meticulous manipulation of widely divergent media, the works become complex networks of abundant, intricately connecting forms that delight in color, line, texture, space, mass, and volume. The exhibition includes four new artist commissions, and takes place in both the atrium and gallery space at Altria.
