Transformations Opening Reception

January 11, 2019 6:00 pm @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

work by artist John Humphries
January 11 – February 16, 2019
Opening Reception: Friday, January 11 | 6-8 p.m.

Join us for the opening reception of “Transformations” Friday, January 11 from 6-8 p.m. Award-winning artist John Humphries mixes drawing with watercolors and a variety of other materials to create intriguing cloudscapes, map-like landscapes and watery scenes that explore ideas of space, narrative, texture, order and material. Let your own imagination run wild as you wander this exhibition.

“Drawings have two dimensions. Or, could have three if we add depth to the plane: it is not impossible. Space has three dimensions. Or, could have four if we dared to add a story, a narrative, or memory: it is not impossible.

In order to convey a more complete image of a complex shifting situation the artist borrows from the Beaux-Arts tradition of analytique drawings which simultaneously included perspectival, orthographic, and conceptual images at various scales within the picture frame…The drawings utilize themes and organizational devices from landscapes, historical narratives, and built environments.” – John Humphries
