Exhibit of George Longfish and Carly Glovinski

The Exhibit of George Longfish and Carly Glovinski ran June 20 through September 12, 2008.  George’s vivid paintings often use humor and irony to address issues of Native identity.  Carly’s work on paper focus on the intersection of sex, violence, advertising and adolescence.  Both Carly and George have studio spaces at the Salmon Falls Mill in Rollinsford, NH.
