The new show includes work from their 2006 exhibition, brand new pieces, as well as everything in between. Delightful 10 captures the evolution of the two artists’ practices while recognizing the mutual respect each has for the other’s career. Davis and Rice explore a variety of themes and imagery that span from the familiar to the unknown. Davis creates imaginative and fantastic work while Rice focuses on concepts more grounded in earth. Both create work that is wise, yet innocent, displaying notions of feminine care and respect. The opening reception on June 23rd will include drinks, hors d’oeurves, and music by Connie Evingson. The exhibition will run through October 2, 2016.
