@ VOL 9 ON AUG 16, 2014

Using images of painted bodies, and a talk laced with quotes by famous people of wisdom, Tirza Shelton shows us how self-enriching it can be to shed the layers we have all been cloaking our true selves in since Adam and Eve first tasted the fruit of knowlege. If we can strip to our true essence, we can embrace our own story.

Kristen Dahms makes beautifully intricate art with layers of various media and subjects. Through this presentation we can see, step by step, how she progresses from concept to finished piece, building layer upon layer of what she referes to as chaos. So be carefull when you look into a finished piece- you might just get lost for a while.
