Opening Reception 2016 Thursday, November 3rd from 5-9pm “Narrative” brings together an all-female cast of artists in a show of largely allegorical, highly detailed, and emotionally resonant works. Reilly Jensen invites the viewer to spend blissful hours at the junkyard with multitudes of ruined and discarded parts, artifacts of consumerism and desire for novelty. Inspired by objects that morph between the mechanical and organic, she blends reality with imagination in her paintings. Izzie Klingels is drawn to building ‘feminine’ attributes into her work, such as sparkle, shimmer, and delicacy. Using obsessive details and rich texture, she describes fragments of a larger narrative. Bette Burgoyne works monochromatically, restraining herself to a black and white palette. Her newest series “Smoke Noir” features women’s hands holding pipes that billow a peculiar smoke, suggestive of shadowy notions.
