Weavings by Armando Sosa & Photographs by Hugo Navarro Hugo Navarro & Armando Sosa
January 9 - May 3
Princeton Public Library
Two artists with a local connection, Armando Sosa and Hugo Navarro, exhibit their work through March. Sosa’s work includes brilliantly colored, hand-woven tapestries and other textiles.

Navarro, a photographer who was born in Guatemala and raised in New Jersey, will exhibit his “Fishing for a Dream” portfolio.
