Honoring heritage while establishing new paths of contemporary expression, Leonard Harmon, Leland Butler, Isabella Saavedra, Chantele Rilatos, and Booker Bartow open the door to rich perspectives in four exciting exhibits.

In the Runyan Gallery:
Leonard D. Harmon & Leland Butler – Walking on Eggshells

At Olive Street Gallery:
Isabella Saavedra – Memories at Night

In the Upstairs Gallery:
Booker Bartow – South Beach Salamander

In the COVAS Showcase:
