Prosers and poets, artists and explorers can all find something to love in Richard Levy Gallery’s latest exhibition, formally opening on Saturday, June 9. Eric Tillinghast’s Þyngdarljóð, or Gravity’s Poetry in English, is comprised of lightboxes that depict waterfalls the artist studied during a two month stint in Iceland.
