Surface Matters

A show of artists who use common construction materials to make their art. It’s pretty familiar territory, but this particular group of artists have consistently found new approaches to the medium. In fact, I can’t figure out why Katie Bell and Carolyn Salas aren’t art market darlings the likes of Heather Rowe. Both make elegant sculptures, installations and wall works that like Rowe suggest interiors and sometimes architectural structures. This show is a must-see.
Artists include: Katie Bell, Carolyn Salas, Leah Dixon, Daria Irincheeva, Brett Day Windham
