Jenny Doores & Andrew Cho. Devil Take the Hindmost

April 20 @ 9:00 am - May 19 @ 5:00 pm

INSIGHT Art Talk: April 30  |  7 pm Jenny Doores combines bold simplicity and fantastic imagery in her sculptures.

Lingscheit’s prints and sculptural works explore the myriad ways in which we are enmeshed with the non-human, from the cellular level to…
