Art Palace is pleased to present a group exhibition, It’s better to regret something you have done…, featuring the works of Jillian Conrad, Nathan Green, Kara Hearn, Jim Nolan, Linda Post and Barry Stone.  The exhibition generated from several conversations with Janet Phelps who helped bring together artists who show a keen wit and a fresh perspective. Though these artists explore different paths, engaging in dialogues range from the formal to the eccentric, each offers a us a peek into the gallery’s future.
