When the Dust Settles at Unpaved Gallery

When the Dust Settles
Curated by Emily Silver
Opening reception: Saturday January 19 3-7pm.
When the dust settles, a moment of clarity arises. The desert is an artist’s haven where expansive skies avows creativity. The Mojave Desert has become a pilgrimage for artists coming to pay homage to their practice. This inaugural exhibition is a collection of works created by artists who share the commonality of physical transplantation from a concentrated asphalt grid. Landing amongst the Joshua trees, an epoch moment has begun to germinate.
