Edges Frayed March 1 – Aug. 8, 2020
Reception: Saturday, Feb. 29, 5 - 7 p.m.
This exhibition brings together three Southern California artists: Bhavna Mehta, Michelle Montjoy, and Irma Sofia Poeter, in a material-rich conversation about construction and connection. Using fine stitching and cutting, fraying fabrics and abstract shapes, text, color, texture, volume and shadow, their work weaves a narrative that seeks to clarify and extend the hidden layers of identity and understanding.

More than 500 artists have appeared in the Cannon Art Gallery Juried Biennial exhibitions. In the alternative years, we present the Invitational, an exhibition in which the work of artists from the preceding Biennial is showcased. This year we are presenting work from local artists Sue DeWulf, Juan Flores, Alison Haley Paul, Annalise Neil and Vicki Walsh.
