William Wolf Art Exhibit in the Cafe

Come check out William Wolf’s art in the Armory cafe in the Month of September.

In his most recent body of work, William Wolf is inspired by childhood narratives that have impacted him throughout his life. Wolf explores forbidden spaces and faces phobias of spaces and the threat of parental authority. He does so through abstraction, process, color and the language of non two-dimensional painting.

About the Artist: William received his BFA painting from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. He received his MFA from the University of Massachusetts Darmouth.

There will be an artist reception in the cafe from 6pm-9pm on Friday, September 2nd.  It’s free and open to the public — join us!
