Join us for the opening of Professors Tina Cassara and David Sapp collaborative exhibition, Threads, Lines, Traces, that celebrate the complexities and sensual nature of line. Cassara is professor and co-chair of Sculpture + Expanded Media at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Sapp, a CIA student in the late 1970s, is professor at Bowling Green University's Firelands campus. A combination of the line in fiber and graphite art, this exhibition is the beginning of an ongoing artistic experimentation in aesthetic influence and different means to develop abstract narratives.
