UnderMain is pleased to launch our new virtual gallery showcasing works by one of Lexington’s own, Lawrence Tarpey. Lawrence was kind enough to work with us on multiple occasions to make this new experience a reality. We are excited at the possibilities this presents and for the opportunity to curate future on-line exhibitions.
