I am so pleased to share that I have an solo show in April at Compass Gallery in Salem, Oregon. I am incredibly thankful to the artists/owners (Bonnie Hull, Tory Brokenshire, and Dayna Collins) for inviting me into their gorgeous gallery. It is an amazing opportunity and I have been working like crazy these last few months to generate all new work to fill the space.
The show will open this coming Friday, April 1st, and will run until May 4th. The reception will be on April 14th, from 5 to 7 p.m. and will be at the same time as our usual Open Studios (which will take place up the stairs from this gallery).
Here is the blurb from the show:
"Memento Mori: A Reminder of the Shortness and Fragility of Life and Memory," a series of new work by Elizabeth Bauman inspired by vintage photographs and decaying bouquets of flowers exploring the impermanence of life and the fragility of memory.
I will be sharing with you here some of those new pieces over the coming weeks. (The last of which, on paper, will be inspiring a new group of pieces over the next couple of months, but more on that later.)
Here is the piece from the show card and one other:
|"Connections" Acrylic on 9 x 12 inch wood panel|
|"Yellow Roses and Peonies" Acrylic on 9 x 12 inch wood panel|
