The official meeting will take   place at 5 p.m. immediately following the opening reception (3-5 p.m.) for the first of CREATE’s 2020 exhibitions.  ‘AFTER THE STORM’ is a solo exhibition by Kristen DeFontes, whose work tells the story of Hurricane Irene’s rampage, havoc and damage to her home, life and psyche. This series of assemblage articulates her art making process from coping with devastation to her feelings of renewal and moving toward a reconstruction in the aftermath of the traumatic experience.  ‘AFTER THE STORM’ will be on display through March 7, 2020. Meet the artist and view the inaugural 2020 exhibition.

Following the opening reception, CREATE members will be engaged at the Annual Membership Meeting. All current members possessing a valid CREATE membership are urged to attend.
