Katherine Swift and Maureen Cooper in Conversation

March 14

Morville: A Garden in Another Time Exhibition

March 1 - 28

Her photographs, including polaroids, were starting points which developed into digital images, paintings and mixed media work to reflect both the garden’s structure and its wildness. The…
