Emma Balder

October 26th, 2019

Emma Balder’s fiber paintings breathe new life into the smallest parts of textile waste, reassigning the fibers as a medium that functions like graphite or paint. Color, form and line work together to shape a new reality for these neglected parts.

September 21st, 2019

Janelle W. Anderson creates paintings and drawings that that relate to memory, consciousness, dreams, perception of time, and the human condition.
