Forthcoming Exhibitions

“Wally Gilbert: Transformations”
Sept 30 - October 18, 2014
2 receptions Saturday, October 4, 4-6 & Thursday, October 9, 6-8

Chelsea: Viridian Artists Inc. is pleased to present the exhibition “Wally Gilbert: Transformations”. The show opens September 30th and continues through October 18, 2014. In celebration, 2 receptions will occur with the artist present at both: Saturday, October 4, 4-6PM & Thursday, October 9, 6-8PM.

Gilbert has been working with digital photography for the past ten years, someti... [ Read all ]
