Gallery: Fabrications by Kellie Weeks

Reception: Thursday, July 3, 7:00 pm

By: Kellie Weeks

Kellie Weeks paints using encaustic and incorporates dry pigments, metal leaf, shellac and other mixed media as vehicles to develop a whole lexicon of imagery. Fabrications is an ongoing investigation founded in the artist's personal relationships that have been formulated as a result of changing and shifting boundaries. Ultimately the artist expresses a hope that when the need for transition and transformation arises, we realize the truth and authenticity that is inherent in our lives and act accordingly. The show will be on view in the Gallery from July 2-30.

Main Hall: Morocco: In Living Color by Maureen Fahey

Reception: Tuesday July 8, 7:00 pm

By: Maureen Fahey

Maureen Fahey's stunning photographs capture impressions of the people, culture, landscape and architecture of Morocco. The exhibit leads the viewer on a diverse journey through Morocco. The photographs are printed using a pressurized heat process on pearlescent metallic medium which intensifies the beauty of the colors. The presentation on high quality natural canvas allows the images to be displayed without a layer of glass separating the viewer from the image, thereby heightening the sensation of being present in the picture. The show will be on view in the Main Hall from July 2-30.
