Currently Showing

Dana Weir, Uncovering, Encaustic collage

uncovering: Dana Weir & Helga Winter

August 12 – October 2, 2022

This exhibit features the work of two Port Townsend artists and addresses the uncovering of images and thoughts, words and intuitions that live beneath our immediate awareness.

The use of reclaimed and natural materials and found objects provide both artists an opportunity to look inside of things—to turn things inside out, reveal hidden layers, tear things apart only to rebuild them again. By altering objects commonly encountered in our daily lives, Weir and Winter offer the viewer a transformative experience, a possible change of perception. Both artists reveal the unexpected resonance within objects, texts, and images through their mixed media collages and assemblages.

Artists’ Talk and Meet + Greet: Saturday, August 13 at 1pm
