Join the Coffee Haus in a special artist’s reception this Friday.

Richard Ross' Solo Show
Kettle Art is hosting Richard Ross' solo show, 100% Recycled: Landscapes of a Landfill, from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday.

It seems he is always searching for new icons by sifting through old beliefs and a disposable contemporary society. With an inventory of works well into the hundreds, this show will be something to see first hand.
