Sep 16-Oct 21 Yechel Gagnon: Midwinter Thaw Gagnon’s visual language gained much of its syntax through working with plywood; the themes and techniques that are explored are diverse.

But instead of introspectively exploring the canvas, Forrest's layered works lift from the surface, tactfully invading the viewers' space.
