Family Circle

By definition, your family circle are the members of your family and your friends who are the closest to you.  For better or for worse, their history is your history. Family is complicated, and family history is a dense web of people, places, and things.  This exhibition explores the complications of family past and present and the lineage of family stories—what is forgotten, remembered, and reinterpreted.  Works in this exhibition tell visual, personal family stories through a range of media, including work by Lisa Barthelson, Jenny Carpenter, Jasmine Chen, Kristen Joy Emack, Lee Kilpatrick, Mary Morazzi-Henderson, and Claudia Ruiz-Gustafson.

Reception Saturday, February 1, 6:00-8:00 p.m.; free and open to the public

Busy expressionistic painting with many swirls and blobs of color across the canvas, but gathered primarily in the center. There are faces peaking out in several areas, including one distinct Asian face at the upper right wearing glasses.

Painting on a light tan birch panel of a woman in a strapless dress or towel and hair in a bun laying on her stomach with her head looking down into a hole. The whole and some details of the figure utilize the tree rings seen in the panel.
