Opening: Sunday, July 21st, from 4 – 8pm
Critique and discussion on the works on view: Tuesday, July 23rd, from 8 – 10pm


This summer, Tompkins Projects has forgone a traditional summer group show, and will be instead holding what we’ve coined the “Summer Smoker Series” – a set of Sunday afternoon barbecues in which we highlight 2 artists’ work in the gallery. The Smoker Series functions as something less than an exhibition, but more than a studio visit; the intention being to allow artists to show work in a more experimental state than they might be comfortable showing in an official exhibition.

The first event will feature artwork by Lee Lee Chan and Anne Vieux. Lee Lee recieved her BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago in 2006. She received an MFA in painting in 2009. Anne received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute, and received an MFA from Cranbrook last spring.

This Sunday, July 21st, we will be having an opening reception and barbecue from 4 to 8pm. The Tuesday following the Sunday BBQ/Reception, a more formal discussion and critique of the artworks will occur. More information about these, and all of our events can be found on the Tompkins Projects Facebook Page.
