These four artists explore vulnerability and resilience as they share their artistic interpretation of skins and the personal impact on each of them through the use of acrylic paints and mediums to create thin pieces of dried paint called skins. For Pat Whittle, the terms thick-skinned and thin-skinned resonate deeply for her. Janice Feist feels that skins represent personal vulnerability and that of the animals living on this planet. Wendie Donabie has a vision of the earth’s fragile ecosystem that’s tormented by over use and neglet. Lynda Lynn has great concern for the constant impact of outside influences on both people and the world we inhabit by constantly depleting our natural resources.
4 Skins opens with a public reception on Saturday, October 14 from 1pm until 4pm. The exhibition continues until November 11.
