Tana Quincy Arcega: “Development and Maintenance” Artist Reception
November 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm| Free
Join us for the opening reception of Development and Maintenance, the new solo exhibition by Tana Quincy Arcega at the Red Poppy Art House, which revolves around the meaning of these pivotal systems within our culture and within contemporary art. The artist turns mass-produced, functional, and disposable items (such as spackling compound, aluminum window screens, shellac, and upholstery fabrics) into artistic tools, giving them new existence through the poetic vision.
