DIMENSION, Richard Hirsch Jane Shellenbarger, a two-person exhibition. As colleagues at RIT’s School for American Crafts, this exhibition provides an opportunity to showcase ourselves as studio artists. It also further engages us in a different kind of professional dialogue. Because the work itself is divergent in both focus and intent, addressing a singular theme allows us to use the language of art to expand our conversation.
