Opening Reception: Dreamscapes

Friday, June 2 from 7:00-10:00 pm, South City Art Supply, 1926 Cherokee

Allison Sissom's "Dreamscapes" draw from charming, familiar material like children's books and nature magazines. But don’t mistake sweet for shallow! She painstakingly intertwines imposing natural spaces with intimate human moments. The effect is a moving contradiction between our powerlessness in the face of a vast universe and the certain meaning in a kind gesture. Allison has promised 50 pieces for this show, so we expect our 2nd floor to be thoroughly transformed! Don’t miss this opportunity to speak with the artist and dream along with her. We’ll have a dog or two, all the usual refreshments, and a few hours to relax into. Facebook Invite
