Homer Babbidge Library, Gallery on the Plaza
February 8 – May 17, 2019
Natalie Granados shares visual stories and celebrates experiences through representations of the architectural and cultural beauty of places. Using exaggerated perspectives mixed with clean lines, she creates detailed depictions of memories through portraits of landmarks.
Utilizing illumination, a method of applying gold leaf, Clara Nguyen creates paintings to capture the abstract and lyrical nature of two major personal influences: music and poetry. With a penchant for geometric forms and flowing lines, she seeks to create miniature worlds of implied meaning.
Please join us for a reception on Thursday, February 14, 4-5:00pm
