This event has ended.

For “Foibeled,” Bill Carman’s 2nd solo exhibition at AFA, the artist has created an intriguing collection of small-scale paintings on wood and copper with compositions that poke fun at stupid human tricks in his hallmark technique of masterful, maniacal detail. Carman will be a guest of honor with six other artists from the AFA stable for a group show that opens on December 14th with a private reception from 5-7PM and then open to the public from 7-9PM. The exhibition is runs through January, 2014.

“With this work I hope to massage rather than club and invite rather than tell. No matter how exacting the composition or painstaking the build up of brushstrokes the motivation is impromptu dialog and the goal discovery through process.” - Bill Carman
