More about Hannah Burnworth

A Mixed-Media Installation and Exhibition: "Manila envelopes, vintage book pages, and wrapping paper: I am fascinated by all kinds of paper. I utilize paper in a variety of art forms, including handmade books, large mixed-media works, and primarily stitched-paper collage. For me, there is a natural ease in working with paper. As a child, my grandmother’s seed catalogues offered hours of entertainment as I cut out single flowers to create elaborate bouquets. Working with paper feels like play."

Next up in Gallery G:
April 3 - Sept. 11, 2017
Reception: Friday, April 21, 5-7 p.m.

More about Jim Scott

In this exhibition, Jim Scott presents a body of works inspired by his travels to the Caribbean Islands and by hiking trips in many state parks. His color palette is inspired by the beautiful colors he encountered on his many adventures. Also included in the show are large acrylic works painted in the style of “fantasy realism,” taking the old Masters’ subject matter and reworking it in a contemporary form.

More about Cara Lee Wade

My Grandmothers (Gram and Granny) were both diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 1999 within months of one another. They lost the ultimate battle in 2004, again within months of one another...As they struggled to retain their identity and their memories, I am now determined to gather them and add them to my own. The result is this imagery.
