Mixed media work by Renee Lewis

October 8 - December 18, 2021

Renee Schwardron Lewis works in oil crayons, color pencils, and pastels to produce bold, stunning colors and uses creative themes to capture the nature of women. At the core of her work are women - empowered, strong - yet vulnerable - linked to others, each other - and beautiful from within. The repetitive patterns, decorative motifs, and bold color in her work reflect Lewis’s background in fabric design.

Jessica Burke: Dressed Up Bones

January 14 – March 19, 2022 

Dressed Up Bones is a collection of drawings by Jessica Burke, an artist and educator, who creates her intricately rendered drawings using a variety of mixed media, from graphite to colored pencil to watercolor to digital media. Each piece depicts a figure, exhibited as a skeleton, adorned with props and clothing to indicate their childhood fantasies or own pre-constructed identities. According to Burke, she “investigates the fiction of identity through its performance in cerebral spaces that project and construct meaning.” The underlying theme asserts death as our silent companion to life, and these images are our shadows.
