MANIFEST : Tracing the Invisible
with artists RALEIGH GARDINER and LISA HILTON

Artists Opening Reception: Friday March 27th from 6-9pm
Artists Talks: Saturday April 18th | Doors at 1 and Talks at 1:30
Exhibition Dates:March 27th through April 29th 2015

Creating figurative work in response to the body and psyche, these two artists surpass the very life they seek to depict.  Constructing both art objects and energetic systems, GARDINER and HILTON turn their subjects inside out, illuminating the psychological and ethereal components of existence as an extension of the physical.

In her paintings and drawings, RALEIGH GARDINER, collages the manifest content of her "mindscapes" into luscious oval snapshots overflowing with psychological and emotional density. In larger abstracts she anthropomorphizes the invisible in her Scenes from a Totemic Bestiary.  Her work is somehow sovereign, vulnerable and always mysterious.

Sculptor, LISA HILTON, creates female figures that conjure, decipher and respond to invisible forcers.  With their gestures and expressions these sculptures trace the invisible and outline for us to what was previously only felt.  With skins of stone and lichen, these ceramic sculptures live in the geo-psychic realm of magical realism.  

Hours: Wednesday & Saturday 1-4pm  This event is free and open to the public.
