WWA’s next show is a solo show featuring a new body of work by Julian Callos, his second solo show at WWA gallery.  Entitled “Cosmos”, it is an exploration of the elements that together make up a personal universe. It’s about the tension between light and dark; about life’s big picture and the tiny details of which it is composed. It is the creation of the universe, of our solar system, and of planet Earth as a metaphor for the development and evolution of an identity.  It opens Saturday, October 12th, from 7-10 pm.
