The exhibition will be on view until December 13, 2017.

Massey creates complex sculptural paintings from simple materials such as wire, mesh, beer cans and paper. Massey's work is driven by her sensitivity to materials, form, texture and shape. Kennebrew creates assemblages of toys from the sixties and seventies to reveal possibilities and narratives that are often overlooked or not widely accepted.
The opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 5, 2017 from 6-9pm at 85 Smith Street in Downtown Brooklyn.
