The insightful exhibition provokes the viewer to discover their own connection to items that are often deemed disposable in modern and unique compositions that invite a second look. The exhibition
 will feature works in a variety of media by Paul Greco, Melissa Starke, Amanda Ioco, and George M. Gutiérrez.

Exhibition: Piece by Piece
Urban Studio Unbound (US+U) is pleased to announce "Piece by Piece", the second exhibition in a series of shows that highlights artists new to the gallery. 

Featured artists include David Alge, Jose Antonio Arvelo, Petra Brambrink, Claire Fishman, Jerry Gallo, Marisa Gonzales Silverstein and Satish Joshi. The works in this show contrast one another to emphasize the varying visual language of each artist, piece by piece.

Exhibition: Covered: Celebrating Muslim Women (extended through July 15)
Yuself Abbul Jaleel created a series of brightly colored graphic designs depicting various Muslim women around the world showing the variety and beauty of coverings. Using illustration, Jaleel explores Muslim women's clothing and modesty as an extension of faith, a form of beauty and as a positive representation of Islam. These images create a more nuanced conversation around Muslim women that is often at odds with the media's portrayal of the religion and its people. 
Walking map + restaurant vouchers of galleries and local restaurants providing discounted food and drink specials will be available at any of the four galleries.
