Join Karen Williams-Brusubardis and her visiting guest, Lauren Marvell, this October 19th and 20th to explore the works of two artists’ botanically inspired creations.
Williams-Brusubardis explains her practice as an intersection between her memory and imagination. As she paints, she wanders through her past and allows contemporary outside sources to interact with her reflections. She creates work that explodes with vibrancy and shape, balancing fantastical with organic patterns and growth.
Similarly, Marvell creates illustrations that are often fueled by the world around her. As she experiences the day-to-day, she observes her surroundings and finds a place for it in her work. By combining memories of moments of intrigue, she creates fictional depictions that are reflective of her inspirations.
The two will have both original and printed work for sale. With the gift-giving season right around the corner, now is the perfect time to purchase a thoughtful gift (or treat yourself) while supporting artists in your community.
