Tom Bartel. Solo Exhibition

October 27, 2017 @ 8:00 am - December 22, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Bartel believes creating images of or depictions about ourselves can be attributed to a primal need to ensure survival or to simply tell important stories about what it means to be human.  His work takes cues from a "shotgun blast" of influences ranging from antiquity…
