Current Exhibit

Collage of three images in a black square with the title "Layers of be-ing" Images (clockwise from top left) are "Kilmartin Glen" an encausting painting by Kathleen Kvern featuring a yellow oval shape on a gray and white background with shadow and oval outlines to the right; A yellow cold wax abstract painting by Cynthia Marie featuring a multi-colored square to the left on a yellow background with jagged lines coming from the square; a photo of a grayish green repurposed fiber sculpture by Nina Martine Robinson with pleating and structuring giving movement to the piece.
Featuring work by Kathleen Kvern, Cynthia Marie and Nina Martine Robinson

The artists of Layers of Be-ing use various media to encourage viewers to see below the surface to find our shared humanity.

Kathleen Kvern’s abstract encaustic paintings use the luminosity, distortion and imperfections of her medium to connect to the mysteries of humanity. Cynthia Maria uses a layering and excavation process with cold wax medium to evoke subliminal vibrational energy in her work. Nina Martine Robinson uses deconstructed clothing and sewing techniques to create unique place-based fiber works that encourage a dialogue about awareness and acceptance of neurodiversity.

On view: January 6-February 12
Opening Reception: Sunday, January 9 at 2-4pm

In order to safely enjoy the show, we ask visitors to wear a mask while in the gallery.
