May 31 – July 1, 2018

Third Friday Reception and Artists’ Salon: June 15th, 6-9 pm

Co-founded by Donn Young, Tinka Jordy, and Katie Bowler Young, artist UNITED is producing a Triangle-wide exhibit for artists to express their ideas around a central organizing theme, “The Walls We Build.” Pleiades Arts will be one of several galleries and organizations participating in this month-long event. The goal of the exhibit is for Triangle-area artists to examine the kinds of walls that we build in our communities: social, economic, physical, political, and metaphorical. The intent is to promote understanding in hope of dismantling the many walls that divide us from one another. http://artistunited.org
