This is sure to be a fascinating exhibition that will feature "stories of transformative or impactful events from artists' preteen years via original works of art and accompanying text."
The opening reception will be held on Thursday, December 1st from 4:30 to 7:00pm CST. More details here.
We Hunt the Doe was selected to be a part of Portrait International Juried Exhibition at the Li Tang Gallery which opens November 4th.
