Irene Akio, “Ordinary People”
January 6-February 3, 2018.
With this body of work Akio chose to explore portraits of ordinary people, both friends and strangers she has come across in her everyday life. She used bright pastels to emphasize the radiance in each of us.
Chris Crites, “Bag Paintings”
February 4-March 4, 2018. Artist reception Thursday, February 15, 7:00 pm.
For over 18 years, Crites has used the brown paper bag as his canvas to examine criminal portraits from the past, as well as crime scenes and accidents from history.
