Design curators Giovanni Castillo (Designform Studio) and Trisha Guido (Relish Design) along with fine arts curator Alicia Johnson (Alicia Blue Gallery) will join forces to orchestrate this uncommon exhibition." The show will be open Tue-Sun, October 16-28, 2010.

Opening reception • 4-9pm • October 15
NW Modern @ The Twombly House • 4449 SW Twombly

Maro Vandorou, "Vertical Time: Crypt"

The Murdoch Collections presents Maro Vandorou's Vertical Time: Persofóneia, the second installment in a trilogy. The exhibition, which was funded in part by RACC, "is an installation of original images that references transformation. The images, in accordance with sacred geometry will form, within the gallery space, a circle of fragile platinum prints. In a parallel space, projected images and echoes of the spoken words of poems will engage the visual and auditory senses." Vandorou uses photographic and printing methods that span 3 centuries.

Opening reception • 6-8pm • October 15
Murdoch Collections • 2219 NW Raleigh
