Curated by Adam G. Mignanelli, Spindles celebrates emerging contemporary artists working in NYC. The group exhibition highlights 12 unique voices, all of whom employ different materials and textures to engage emotional states. The theme stems from ideas about spindle neurons, which allow for rapid communication through brain cells.

Included in the exhibition are the following: Samuel T. Adams, Gordon Douglass Ball, Trudy Benson, Jon Blank, Palma Blank, Michael Dotson, Amy Feldman, Ryan Foerster, Oliver Jones, Maia Ruth Lee, Matt Mignanelli, and Kris Scheifele.
