"an idea of why" opens at Willo North.
From First Friday haps to soccer, trivia, and modern dance, here's what to mark your calendar with this weekend.

"an idea of why"

Phoenix artist Daniel Shepherd brings solo work to Willo North Gallery for an upcoming show entitled "an idea of why." The artist, who works in abstract paintings and collages using old magazines and photographs, uses these repurposed materials to create work minimalist in style and complex in message. The goal of this exhibition, he says, is to explore "how everyone has their own idea of why, everyone thinks their idea of why is the right reason -- but in the end it's a question, but then again it's not a question."
