Medicine Wheel Productions’ Spoke Gallery presents: Then and Now, a three person exhibition of work by internationally known South African artists Sophia Ainslie, Illona Anderson, and Paul Stopforth.
Please join us on Saturday, April 21st for the opening of this great new exhibit! A gallery talk will be held at 5:30 PM with a reception following from 6-8 PM.
The three artists were originally based in Johannesburg, South Africa, but now call the Greater Boston area their home. Although they share a deep connection to each other through their mutual ties to South Africa and the antiapartheid movement, this is the first time they have exhibited together.
