Tone It Down a Notch!

The Shoe Factory Art Co-op celebrates their two year anniversary with a minimal art exhibit.

Art lovers who believe that less is more will enjoy “Tone It Down a Notch: Minimal Art”.  The show consists of 32 current works of art created by 18 individual artists basing their style on the minimalist art movement of the 60’s and 70’s.  On display are paintings, mixed media, photography, digital art, and sculpture, each piece expressing simplicity in technique, form, size, or color.
