Gallery Show

The show in our Atrium Gallery this April is by award winning artist Joan Lok. Next time you are here, plan to spend some time enjoying her distinctive work. Joan is teaching a class on April 21. If you have an artistic nature, treat yourself to an afternoon in her rigorous but comforting teaching presence. Your aesthetic self will benefit from the mere proximity to her.
