Reception Photos (Part 1): Celebrating Our South African Voices Exhibition
On Saturday, January 11, WPG hosted a well-attended exhibition reception for our current show, South African Voices: A New Generation of Printmakers. During this event, guests surveyed prints by the nearly 40 emerging artists who contributed to the exhibition. Below, you will find several photos from this reception, with more to come on Friday. This is the final week for the exhibit, so make sure you come by the gallery to take a look (if you haven’t already)!
