Mixed Media Paintings – Marsha Glazière
February 21st April 12th 2013
Opening Reception: February. 21st 6-9 pm

CompositeThe only way to examine a departed culture is through its legacy of artifacts. Like the Egyptian pyramids and the Pantheon of Rome we shall be known as The Great Road Builders. Marsha Glazière reworks these monumental formations into intimate landscapes. Coaxing the essence of sun-dappled glen from visually neglected industrial spaces. The resulting mosaic of color, repurposed imagery, and textured physical objects mimic the frenetic vibration of our contemporary culture. – Oliver Doriss
