All Things That Are, Are Light and Soot

Year two of Quappi Projects begins this week with the opening of Vanessa Albury’s “All Things That Are, Are Light and Soot.” Inspired by the artist’s family history and the build-up of history in dirt, dust and ivy accumulated and grown over forgotten windows, Albury will be creating and exhibiting mural-scaled cyanotypes of massive and filth-caked windows. Guests may join Quappi Projects from 5 to 9 p.m. on Sept. 21, as it celebrates this work and the inauguration of its second year. Quappi Projects is located at 1520 B Lytle St. on the second floor.
