Interwoven December 14, 2012 – March 3, 2013 A Group Exhibition and Grand Opening celebration of Warren Lewis Sotheby’s International Realty Williamsburg
November 2012, Brooklyn, NY – Warren Lewis Sotheby’s International Realty in collaboration with Causey Contemporary Gallery is pleased to present Interwoven, a group exhibition of gallery artists. The opening reception of this salon show will also mark the grand opening of Warren Lewis Sotheby’s International Realty office in their new Williamsburg, Brooklyn location.
Interwoven will unite many different styles, voices and processes representative of the gallery. The exhibition will feature works by Bahar Behbahani, Nina Carelli, Lauren Dreier, Elise Freda, Kathy Goodell, Howard Gross, Melissa Murray, Norman Mooney, and Carri Skoczek. Interwoven will bring abstraction to mingle with representation; it will allow minimalism to converse with effusive detail; and ultimately it will present the emergence of similarities and differences between these diverse artists.
