A collaborative exhibition by Ben and Delaney DeMott
“A collection of works by two artists working in their own time over three years. Concurrent, peripheral practices activated when time and desire coalesce. Weaving, ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, collage. Relocation, building, expansion, learning, supporting, birthing. Each material each trace a tool and die, leading to Something Seaming.”
