Force :: A Group Show About Nature
For the month of September, Make.Shift Gallery will feature several local artists who explore the relationship between humans and nature. Biologist and artist, Audrey Thompson, uses fire and wood to create pyrographic portraits of aquatic animals. Mattie Templeton incorporates bright colors and geometric shapes to bring large predators to life. Cydni Carter’s mixed media collages meditate on the landscapes of our memories. Nicole Denning’s intricately layered illustrations and Karen Hanrahan’s torn paper collages raise questions about the relationship between violence against women and humanity’s impact on the environment. This collection will also feature black and white photography by Rod Haynes and oil paintings on recycled wood by Seth Benish.
This exhibition coincides with Endangered Species: Artists on the Front Line of Biodiversity, which will be held at the Whatcom Museum from September 8, 2018 – January 6, 2019.
I mentioned works of nudity that I had in my portfolio to the gallery director. That is how I was invited to participate in this group show and the Prospective Parts Show in July.
I have five framed pieces in this show. One is a larger 18 x 24 collage that I just love
This time we were invited to add works for sale on consignment. thus the morphed - nude series. now #'d wrapped and ready to sell. I was super excited to see my collage be chosen for the event cover photo.
Photography = a never ending opportunity to capture visual celebrations.
