HMNS Catalysts Event: Archway Gallery Opening

Mix, mingle and mosaic.

Join Archway Gallery for a private insider event for Catalyst members to see the new exhibition There Is Another Garden, featuring new work by Sherry Tseng Hill & mosaics by Nathan Hill. Thursday, February 27, from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Light bites and wine will be served. Valet parking is available.

The mother & son duo will be on hand to preview their new show which observes the similarities between the plant and human world. Using mosaic tile, as well as paper, paint, and other materials, each artist explores the possibilities of realism versus abstraction, of the cells that make up the whole, and of the underlying mathematical patterns. The result is a revelation that There is Another Garden, one that can seem both beautiful and strange.

A silent auction benefits the Cockrell Butterfly Center Adopt-a-Butterfly program. A short mosaic demonstration will be held at 7 p.m.

This free ticket serves as your reservation for the event.

Archway Gallery is located at 2305 Dunlavy. www.archwaygallery.com
