The last week of April saw the opening reception of Arbitrating Places, a selection of works by O’Born Contemporary artists. The evening was hosted by 333 Bay St.’s 9th floor arbitration offices and OBC artists Kate McQuillen and Public Studio proudly represented the gallery’s roster, along with members of the gallery family! Thank you to Arbitration Place for welcome us into your work space. For details of the work included in the show, please click here.
