Opening Reception – New Growth
Rochester Contemporary Art Center
137 East Ave.
Oct 1, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This First Friday, RoCo is pleased to host the first solo exhibition of local artist Rae Wiggins. Opening in our Lab Space alongside “Messages & Mediums”, “New Growth” features a range of new and recent artworks, from figurative paintings on corrugated cardboard – a favorite material for the artist – to smaller portraits and gestural multi-media works on board.

According to the artist, “New Growth is a series on the journey to new found purpose and space. It dives into how we need fresh soil to start and claim a new beginning. Those new chances can come when we least expect them to. Watching them sprout overnight and breaking the surface.”

Learn more about the artist and their process on RoCo’s website.

This exhibition continues through November 13.
