"Reverberating Echoes" Opens January 31, 2017, at the Doug Adams Gallery

The Doug Adams Gallery's Spring 2017 exhibition, “Reverberating Echoes: Contemporary Art Inspired by Traditional Islamic Art,” highlights the work of seven American artists of diverse interests, backgrounds, and training.  Inspired by traditional Islamic art, their works echo historic aesthetic concerns, often advancing human knowledge and understanding by experimentation with new technologies.
