About the exhibition
"FLUX gathers a diverse body of work incorporating traditional elements of art such as color, shape, line, and movement with the makers' individuality and expression; the final compositions often reveal their processes and histories through raw visible construction and bold mark-making. While they are threaded by a similar language, these fifteen artists approach their practices in exclusive and unique ways such as how Dorrie Reid uses color and gestural shapes to move the observer through a painting evocative of rolling hills passing on a long journey or Lisa Blevens' intimate ceramics that conjure sensations of living, breathing forms growing and melting all at once."
