Join us on Thursday for the opening of our March show, "Aging Beauty," a series of gigantic acrylic on canvas works by Kate Tesch. This show is *really* awesome, and we're very excited about it.
Kate works with a splattered paint technique, and pulls individual spots on canvas together to form shapes of people and faces. The works are quite large, and we're excited that our 18' walls will be filled with her art. Artist will be in attendance, and we will be pouring local microbrews for one-dollar-off during the event.
Artist's description of show:
"This series of paintings deals with the universal human condition of aging. Inevitable and inescapable from the day we are born, we are all involuntarily awakened to the unstoppable passing of time. From expressions of wonder on a newborn's face to those sculpted into the face of an old man, the landmarks of the past and the expressions of the unknown future are remarkably displayed in our faces. From an infant to an octogenarian our expressions leave impressions... what is painted on your face?"
