Just after finishing up a huge solo exhibition at the Triton Museum in Santa Clara, CA, Brazilian-born Poloto began working on a fresh new body of work for her second Butters Gallery solo show. A group of very tall vertical panel works will be part of the amazing collection that is in the works for this exhibition, entitled Flowers Blossoming.
July also brings the introduction of the newest stunning glass works by Paul Cunningham, whose work was included in the recent exhibition King Street Concentric, curated by Benjamin Moore. His newest works are more monumental and the gallery will have examples from the two newest series: Modelli and Barca.
