EXHIBITIONS

 

May 10 – July 14, 2019

Womanscape featuring Diane Walters with Lindsay Dew

 

Diane Walters is a lifelong potter and her fascination with the earth’s sedimentary layers and mountainous landscapes led her to explore this theme in her Womanscape Basins. These works depict geological form and movement using natural oxides and sculptural formations, which call out the message that the earth is alive, and she is holding us at the table.

 

Lindsay Dew’s artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Her artwork comments on our connection to land and our personal relationship to our surroundings. In her chosen medium of acrylic and inks, Lindsay applies multiple layers providing visual dimension.

 

July 19 – October 13, 2019
