Radiolaria & Reef: Our Ocean's Living Abstractions

Second Street Gallery is pleased to present Radiolaria & Reef: Our Ocean’s Living Abstractions, an exhibition of new work by artist Tina Curtis in Second Street Gallery’s Dové Gallery.

Curtis is attracted to the urchins, coral, and microscopic species of marine life that subtly grow, breathe, and move in our world’s oceans. Radiolaria & Reef is a close study of these living abstractions from these increasingly fragile bodies of water; both the thriving and the dying reef systems of our time. This new collection of work, created specifically for the exhibition at Second Street Gallery, is an assemblage of vibrant, abstract Oceanscapes consisting of bedecked kelp fronds, barnacles, gold leafed sponge coral and meticulously rendered Radiolarians, or “science lace,” as the artist refers to them.

SSG is open Tuesday - Friday from 11AM - 6PM and Saturday from 11AM - 4PM.
