Artist Reception 5-8:30pm
Weyrich Gallery presents Intimation: New Works by Laura Pope. Painting in many layers of transparent color, Pope allows the paint to “speak to her and tell her what it wants to become.” Her subjects magically appear out of splotches and random strokes or are often enlarged until they approach abstraction to keep an air of mystery about them. Pope states, “An intimation is a hint; a suggestion. The intimation theme defines this exhibit. Each of the images I am presenting tells a story.” Show Closes: January 31, 1014
