New at Spalding Nix Fine Art

THOROUGHFARE features new work by John Dean, Peter Essick, Esteban Patino, and Corrina Sephora. A "thoroughfare" is a road or path forming a route between two places. The works in this show speak to the connections of all things – between places, between the spirit world, and the physical world, from one consciousness to another.

Open during special hours this Saturday, July 22, from 12-4 p.m.
