Carbondale Community Arts is thrilled for the exhibit The Barista Who Disappeared that will be on view May 30 – June 29 at Artspace 304. The exhibit will feature installation, a series of painting, and sculptural objects created by artist Adam Turl.

He has a BFA from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and an MFA from the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in Saint Louis.
