Unbounded Opening Tonight



Hope you can make it to the opening tonight of Unbound(ed) at Morpho Gallery in Chicago from 6-9pm!

“Unbound(ed)” is a juried exhibition featuring work from artists from around the country who work in encaustic. The title refers to the term “Unbound” and all of its meanings. Each artist has approached this theme in their own way, resulting in an exhibition filled with different styles, techniques and new takes on this ancient medium. Please join us!

About the exhibit:

Silence Speaks presents a collection of works by Ahavani Mullen which have evolved from a place of silence. Navigating the seen and the unseen, these pieces explore how the earth plane and the higher, inner worlds blend with each other and complete each other. The result are relatively permanent documents, those that contain not only a record of an experience, but also the lingering fragrance of an impermanent consciousness.
