Nucleus is delighted to present Forest Carousel - a stunning duo exhibition featuring two of our favorite artists. Becky Dreistadt and May Ann Licudine (a.k.a. Mall) take us on a colorful journey into an enchanted forest that is bursting with fascinating creatures and surprises. The artists have brought life to an imaginative cast of characters that find themselves in the center of a magical and mysterious carnival deep within the woods.
