Friday, 6-8 p.m. Ceramic artist Matthew Eames and painter-poet Jay Phillips have collaborated on “Pro Tem,” the Latin phrase that means “for the time being.” The artists have used a variety of mediums to examine time’s impermanence. In a press release, Eames said, “We have pieces that we worked on individually with the intent to combine them in a collaborative sense for the show. We want the focus to be on our work, and how that work can speak to each other within the concept of impermanence.” The show will remain on display through April 27.
