The gallery presents works by Dana Velasco and Merge, a show of ceramic tile mosaics by Dani Jeffries. Dani Jeffries’ tile mosaics are representations of places she has visited that she found to be particularly remarkable for their beauty or the quality of the light. Dayna Velasco’s work explores how energy is experienced as emotion, mysticism and story. Her pieces are inspired in great part from her work as a Polarity Therapist, where she witnesses how energy moves within the physical and emotional body.
