Gallery I – Relevant Shapes: Justin Eccles & Lauren Harlowe
Justin Eccles and Lauren Harlowe interpret the residue of everyday imagery hidden in our unconscious memory. Eccles’ mixed media works entangle illustrations and abstract shapes. Harlowe’s paintings stretch, turn and shift simple designs into complex patterns.

Gallery II – Animalia Anne and Tim Connor & Rebecca Kautz

Gallery III – Growing Pains: Alyssa Ackerman & Human Condition/Artist Sanity: DarRen Morris
Alyssa Ackerman and DarRen Morris use portraiture to reveal the countless emotions of humanity. Ackerman utilizes nontraditional and craft materials to examine human vulnerability and isolation. As a former gang member, Morris paints from the wounds of his life in hopes of inspiring young people to better versions of themselves. Art is his sanity during incarceration.
