Containment & Boundlessness

Giannina Dwin   |    Nina Surel

September 1st – November 19th, 2023

The work of both artists intertwines by their interest in the passage of time, women’s bodies, bodily experiences, nature, vessels and seeds as metaphors.  They have collaborated, participated in multiple groups shows together, and now they’ve come to Arts Warehouse as a two artist exhibition.  Giannina and Nina are associated with The Collective62 in Miami, an all-women artist’s run space in Liberty City founded by Nina Surel. Containment and Boundlessness includes collaborative works in mixed media, as well as ceramic pieces by both artists.
