Exhibitions close this Sunday, practice yoga in the gallery and extended hours

There are only a few days left to see both Guo Fengyi and Frances Stark’s work at the Contemporary Art Gallery.

Sunday April 15th is your last chance to view the exhibitions Guo Fengyi and Frances Stark My Best Thing.

And YOGA. After a very successful and sold out yoga event on Sunday March 25th at the Contemporary Art Gallery, we have once again partnered with Yoga Outreach to present one last yoga workshop on the closing day of the exhibition, this Sunday from 11am to 1pm.

To accommodate for this special yoga fundraising event we are thrilled to extend our hours on Sunday from 1 pm to 7pm  for a final view of these two extraordinary exhibitions. We look forward to seeing you this weekend at the Contemporary Art Gallery.
