Migratory Seeds: New Work by Hung Liu

Pamela Schoenberg and dnj Gallery would like to invite you to join artist (and previous graduate professor) Hung Liu in celebrating her ground-breaking new body of work.

Opening Reception: Friday, July 17, 5-7pm

“Her new paintings are portraits of the most humble of flowers—the dandelion—and they are spectacular….
In their simplicity, the paintings subtly convey themes Liu has been interested in all along: the passing of time, the impermanence and fragility of life.”
