Novado Gallery will present “REFERENTIAL,” opening with an artist reception on Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 6:30-9pm. The exhibition features paintings by four artists: Yang Cao, David Samuel Stern, Lacey McKinney and Lisa Ficarelli-Halpern, whose different backgrounds are united by using visual arts as REFERENTIAL to present an image as narrative. Their use of the human form is a signifier of language, used to interpret society’s past, present and possible future. Within these artworks, we may reveal ourselves in coexistence within the duality of our subconscious and what we reflect to society. The exhibition is curated by Anne Novado, and will run through Saturday, December 1, 2018. www.novadogallery.com
