AMANDA MARKEL & MEGHAN PURCELL
LIMINAL: Left behind but not yet there
ON VIEW: December & January
OPENING RECEPTION: December 4th | 5PM – 8PM
OPEN MIC STORYTELLING: 6PM
Amanda Markel’s sculptural work gives homage to the deep rooted tradition of bronze casting while pushing the medium into a surprising and innovative realm of new possibilities. The defining characteristics of her expressive wildlife sculptures are the striking use of design, balance, and negative space to give visual form to the invisible stories of our inner experience as humans. These contemporary works draw you into a new way of looking at the world and are the heart and soul of life. They are the stories of our courage, our freedom, and our hope.
This body of work is an extension of our collective conversation on how to achieve social healing. At this pivotal time of reckoning, there is a call to surrender to the discomfort found in the difficult conversations in order to pave the way for change. Human connectivity and finding common ground shows up in how we create space to hear and feel the pain of those we perceive as “other”. How can we continue this conversation and participate in healing what is broken within ourselves and within our systems in order to shape a more tolerant and moral world for our children and grandchildren to live in?
*We are limiting the event to 45 people and asking that those in attendance wear a mask. Wine will be served but no food.
