MENDING FRACTURES & Fall Gallery Night

Opening Reception October 12, 5-9 pm

Join us Friday, October 12 for the opening reception of MENDING FRACTURES: New Work by Lee Emma Running and Kim Hutchison. We are celebrating the artist’s unique visual representations of repurposing and giving discarded objects a new life. Hutchison’s collage and assemblage works are often about creating for the sake of creation and the challenge of using materials such as fabric, paper, paint, and drawing tools in order to give cast offs new context. Running’s creations investigate the beauty and complexity of natural phenomena. Recently, Running has been focused on environmental implications and natural causes that result in incomplete deer skeletons found in the landscape. In re-articulating the cleaned and polished skeletons and filling in the missing fragments with cast glass, she is able to assign new meaning and a certain preciousness to an otherwise disregarded decay process.
