Opening reception for contemporary art exhibit is Friday at Houghton University

An opening reception for a contemporary art show centered around the theme of design will be held from 6:30PM to 8PM Friday at the Ortlip Gallery in the Center for the Arts at Houghton University.

The exhibit will feature six New York artists, who will display works which are “crafted to solve a specific human problem,” such as the need to sit on something, such as a chair.

The September 1 opening of the Concept + Material + Design show, to include refreshments, is free and open to the public.

The art will continue on display from 9AM to 6PM Mondays through Saturdays, through Saturday, October 7, at the 1 Willard Avenue facility.
