First Exhibit

Steven and William Ladd: Lead With a Laugh
September 4, 2022 - February 5, 2023

Steven and William Ladd create collaboratively, pulling from childhood stories and experiences to transform materials, such as textiles and beads, into microcosms of memory.

Underpinning Steven and William Ladd’s imaginative creations are their three core principles:

• Spend your life doing what you love.
• Be focused and disciplined.
• Collaborate.

Staying true to these core principles has enabled Steven and William Ladd to create—focused, yet freely—a spectrum of works that vary in technique, color, texture, and form.

The exhibition will include past works, as well as new works being exhibited for the first time, that embody this range and the artistic evolutions along the way.
