“Following the Circuitous Thread” Show of Mixed Media Paintings by Eve Margo Withrow Art & Soul Gallery – August 2017

I’m always curious to explore the edge that lies outside the box. From that perspective, I reflect on the essential feeling ingredients of an experience or place.

Please join us for a festive evening of Fine Art, Music by Rick Millward, conversation and some refreshing nibbles!
