Current Exhibition

Naomi Friend: Cyanotypes

November 14, 2018 - January 6, 2019.

Closing Reception, Friday, January 4th, 2019 5pm - 7pm.

"I explore the intersection of our urban, rural, and wild spaces through artmaking. My pieces are one-of-a-kind exposures using Cyanotype, combining the photo process with drawn illustrations of farm animals, cultivated, and native species. My work highlights the strength and character of the animals while putting them into the context of our modern lifestyle. The artwork recognizes a contract of co-dependance between us and the creation around us. This relationship requires our love and respect to thrive and grow. My meticulous process of art-making reflects how I feel we can care for the world. When we care well for the small things, we care well for the big things too." - Naomi Friend

All works available for purchase and carry out at time of sale. Hand-crafted botanical greeting cards by Naomi Friend also available.
