Photos from the first epoxyspace show! Thanks to all our friends who helped us pull this off, we couldn’t have done it without you <3 <3 <3

Statement : “Founders Annie Cox, Erin Hart, Katie Magruder and Sarah Valdez will present their first installation in their new gallery and performance space EPOXY. In Haptics, EPOXY creators collaboratively display five nail sets that involve the five senses common to human nature with a sixth sense unifying the concept. Annie Cox and Sarah Valdez will illustrate with wall design along with an avant-garde window shopping atheistic for each nail station. Erin Hart, founder of Nail Pop LLC, uses plaster hand forms to display sets of nails made out of acrylic and gel sculpture, materials used to build nail enamel. Haptics, invites viewers to use their five senses with each nail situation extending their interaction and consumption. Throughout the opening reception Katie Magruder will be performing an interactive game with any participant. Through the symbolic nature of wearing nails that interact with the human senses, EPOXY manifests a nonverbal language with orientation, desire and play.”
