  Event Description Time / Location
10/6 - 11/5 Face Value

Nick Cassway, Mark Khaisman, and Steven Earl Weber approach portraiture, commodification, and social commentary through the manipulation of packaging tape, laser cut stencils, glass, and paint.  By looking back in time and forward in technology, these artists speak to our perennial obsessions with pictorial representation, social dynamics, and materiality by commandeering lo-fi materials in service of high craft, concept and critique. Curated by Amie Potsic, Executive Director of Main Line Art Center and presented in partnership with Pentimenti Gallery. Visit or call 610.525.0272 for more information.
