EXHIBITION ESSAYS

exhibition_essays_thickNAPOLEON is excited to announce the launch of a written response series for upcoming exhibitions.

Invited writers, both local and national, will pen essays to accompany shows in an effort to extend the conversation at work in the gallery.  We anticipate a lively exchange of critique between writer and artist and hope that the accompanying essay may offer a deeper interpretation for the visiting audience to consider.
