Artist Reception will be held on Saturday, October 2nd, 3-5pm. The public is welcome!
“Betwixt and Between:” New sculptures that borrow from nature, dreams, and the Victorian drawing room.
“Inside meets outside in this ceramic bestiary set among bits and pieces from the past. Born during a period of social isolation, this work invites nature in and explores the desire to possess, tame and domesticate it.”
