40th Anniversary: Artists M – V Press Release

40th Anniversary: Artists M – V 

February 2 – 24 at Gallery NAGA

The second half of NAGA’s 40th Anniversary exhibition will take place in February, highlighting work by 24 artists and furniture makers. The first part of the exhibition, artists A – K, took place in May of 2017, and in typical NAGA fashion, was wildly diverse. The finale of the show will be no different; you can expect drawing, paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture and even a few mirrors.

The exhibition runs from February 2 – 24. A reception for the artists and the public will be held at the gallery on Friday, February 2 from 6 to 8 pm.

“I think every major anniversary deserves a celebration,” Meg White, director, says. “This feels like a substantial milestone. We’ll use any excuse to show our artists together, under the same roof. It’s like throwing a party to celebrate ourselves, and we’re not above that.”

Speaking of party… stick around after the opening from 8 – 11 pm, and join us for music and comfort food by Roxy’s Grilled Cheese. This after-party is free and open to all. The rumors about last year’s shindig are probably true.
