Ancient Stories: Contemporary Expressions

The exhibition entitled “Ancient Stories: Contemporary Expressions” brings together the work of fifteen regional artists who work in multi-media carved and painted wood panels of varying styles and scales from intimate to large works. The panels tell evocative tribal stories through each artist’s individual contemporary artistic expressions.

The panels are a breathtaking presentation of line, shapes, composition, carving techniques, deep colored hues and painting styles that make up the mixed-media panels and constructions in the exhibition. Although varied, a consistency in the artists’ passion for working in wood and artistic camaraderie unites each of these intriguing and inspired pieces.
