"The Journey Circles Back" sculptures by David Knorr
David Knorr is expressing his artistic voice through architectural totems and biomorphic sculptures. David shares his inspiration from organic abstractions that emulate in nature.

"Colors of Longing" paintings by Alma Telibecirevic
Alma Telibecirevic expresses her spiritual longing for creative ideas through her art by fusing colors, lines, and movements together to inspire a meaning and emotions worth exploring.
She likes to construct an emotional art full of paradoxes: the collusion of melancholy and happiness, love and solitude, the decorative and the meaningful, ecstasy and sorrow, hope and despair...

Meet the artists and discuss their work at an informal meet-and-greet in the gallery on Saturday, November 23rd from 2-5pm.

Join us for a First Friday reception from 6:30-8:00 pm January 3, 2020 featuring live music. The reception is supported by the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library.
