“Convergence: Two Groups, One Vision” is expressing a personal vocabulary through engaging art materials to its limit, said Ray Chen, Halcyon executive director. Both groups explore increasingly subjective forms of representation. They also share a vital sense of celebration and an eagerness for inspiration.
