The Fourth Wall


Kim Bennett and Carrie Lederer

From the Studio 3

May 1: This week, The Fourth Wall continues its series of interim online exhibitions by pairing works from the studios of two Bay Area artists, Kim Bennett and Carrie Lederer. Kim was scheduled for a two-person show this year, which has been rescheduled. Carrie’s solo show was to be installed in the gallery the week shelter-in-place began. We look forward to a rain check on that. This exhibition celebrates Spring 2020 through a conversation between the works of these two artists, each profoundly inspired by nature.
