“Portraits & Icons,” runs through mid-February 2021; during that time new solo exhibitions will also be debuted in the FOUND:RE Contemporary Gallery. The first of which opens Saturday, October 17 (and runs for one month) and features the photographic art Lawrence Fung. The launch of this exhibit also coincides with the grand opening weekend of the new Match Market & Bar.
