Opening Reception for Tim Hayes, Bill Ayers, and Jeff Brown

Levee Gallery presents the work of Bill Ayers, Jeff Brown, and Tim Hayes from March 14 through April 27. There will be an opening reception on March 14th from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM. There is a common thread amongst each of the artists in this show, simple shapes and forms come together like architectural structures, and marks of the process subtly reveal the artists intentions. What appears understated at first glance on the surface, gives the mind a quiet moment to ponder and reflect upon the greater meaning within the work.
