Featured artist Olga Ponomarenko
Opening reception: Saturday, June 9, 2018 * 6p-9p
June 9 - July 7, 2018
For our ROOM AND BOARD IN A MUSHROOM exhibit, artist Olga Ponomarenko's second featured spot, we will be treated to small meditative paintings of animals that explore how urbanization damages wilderness and forces wild animals to adapt to a citified existence. Olga's paintings speak of the ephemeral joys of daily life and each will be housed within a handmade and hand painted decorative mushroom frame.
Olga will be joined by a wonderful group of artists that will also explore the ordinary aspects of human existence in playful and witty ways. By looking at the ordinary with new eyes, we hope to find a richer sense of existence beyond that of the usual daily routine.
