Join us Thursday February 6, 2020 at 3:30 pm to hear artists Jeanne Williamson and Kim Alemian talk about their work currently on exhibit in the North Hill Gallery.

Both artists had a long-term personal project that each individually encrypted in their art. Join us to hear them talk about their process and their art. They’ll even give you a guide to help you crack the codes!
