The Red Head Gallery is pleased to present, Body of One, an exhibition by Peggy Taylor Reid. In lieu of a reception, the artist will be present on Saturdays from 12 – 5PM throughout the duration of the exhibition.

Body of One is an unguarded look at the transitory nature of our being. A spiritual successor of Taylor Reid’s past work, Body of One encourages the acceptance of impermanence, and links the passage of time to states of change. They are image transfers with collage that combine self-portraits with anatomical drawings.
