Exhibition features painters whose work range from the realistic to the abstract, from the timeless to the political, personal, and immediate. Telling a story, or a piece of a story, each body of work engages with, and reveals itself to the viewer differently –– overtly, partially veiled, mysteriously, ambiguously, over time. From domestic settings and current events to iconic configurations, all create unique places, states of being, and visual narratives for the viewer to explore.
Opening Reception: Feb. 27, 6–8 PM; accompanied by Gypsy Jazz Quintet
NEW WORKS IN PAPER COLLAGE
BY PAMELA M. PARSONS
From tiny fragments of our own visual history –– from scientific diagrams, travel magazines, outdated school texts, and illustrated children's books, to old foxed lithographs, discarded maps, and collected decorative paper scraps –– a little Americana is revealed. Parsons repurposes diverse graphic matter, juxtaposing color and image to create new intricate designs and off–beat narratives. This fresh body of work is delightfully innovative, energetic, and decidedly contemporary.
