The work presented here is part of a continuing series entitled No Edge No Center. The title refers to the “edge-center” problem studied by cosmologists. It also refers to Edgar Allen Poe’s unlikely contribution to the then-unanswered questions of Olber’s paradox in his prose poem “Eureka.” Poe’s writings (as well as those of his follower H.P. Lovecraft) are often abstract meditations on the above-mentioned “immense spiritual dread of space,” though usually underpinned by a detective’s mathematical use of logic.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
