Leslie Sobel opens “there is no other” Art Exhibit

22 North Gallery in Ypsilanti to debut new exhibition in November

Environmental artist Leslie Sobel will bring her new solo exhibit “there is no other” to Ypsilanti’s 22 North Gallery in November. 

Being the title of a Rhiannon Gidden album that Sobel has been listening to on loop in the studio, she found inspiration through the ideas that resonated with her immediately. 

She says her art delves into the idea that “we make artificial separations between ourselves and other people, let alone other entities living and not. Our concept of separation lets us distance ourselves from caring for each other, for animals, for plants and for the entire world.”  Her works are about connection and finding beauty in a time of stress, fear, and isolation, much like we all went through during the pandemic. 

On Saturday, December 11 at 7pm Leslie Sobel will hold a free talk about the exhibit and her inspiration for creating the works featured in it. 

The exhibit will open on November 19th and run through December 18th with free admission at 22 North Gallery.

The public opening will take place on First Fridays Ypsilanti on December 3 from 6-9pm. 

Regular open hours will be on Sundays from 3-6pm or by appointment throughout the week.
