The Betty Mae Kramer Gallery & Music Room is pleased to present rise + fall, an exhibition of new works by Adjoa Burrowes and Lendeh Sherman with a public reception on Friday, September 18, 2015 from 6:30pm until 8pm.  The artists of rise + fall address current social and environmental issues through exploratory mixed media processes and installation based works.  Inspired by the recent high-profile cases of Trayvon Martin and Freddie Gray, Lendeh Sherman's portraits on silk are examinations of personal and collective grief.  Adjoa Burrowes' installation, produced primarily from recycled materials and cardboard, invites the viewer to reconsider his or her relationship with and definition of "waste". rise + fall will remain on view through December 4, 2015.
