Gallery No. 2: Bryan Tisdale, Drawn Inward. Of this work, Tisdale says, "Through layering symmetrical patterns I express simultaneous chaos and balance that I often feel in my everyday life. Patterns and forms, that by themselves may express a singular emotion, are layered to create a complex visual representation of feelings that I have at the time of creation. I use color to represent emotions that I might openly share with others, while gray tones represent emotions are shared with few or only shared through this visual medium.”
In Hank & Dolly’s Gallery: The ViewFinder Project, P U L S E - Recent images from near and far. The ViewFinder Project uses photography to help people of all ages “see life differently” challenging them to use creative thinking in becoming community change makers.
In Gallery Annex: work by Lauren Ditchley and Katherine Fries.
The work hangs through March 27th.
The Harrison Center's 30+ studio artists open their doors for the second of four annual open studio nights.
