Ripped and Rewoven

The exhibition featured three artists exploring the continuously changing nature of life and our responses to those changes. All of existence is constantly ripping and reweaving. Devastation becomes recovery. This “Ripping and Reweaving” is The Truth of all life.

Artist Eloise Larson will be presenting her paintings, “My body meets each day with the necessary response. Every now and then I get a glimpse of what is going on. My life is unraveling. Repairing it, I try to keep it just as it was, tightly woven into ‘my’ design, but the original pattern evades me. It rips again, and I reweave it again. It rips again. I reweave it. It rips again; I reweave it. Again and again. When the string runs out, I stop.” 

In support of our community, one of Larson’s paintings will be available through a raffle. All proceeds will go to the Siskiyou Food Bank. We will announce the winner towards the end of the evening.

Melinda Whipplesmith Plank will also present her reduction woodcut prints to challenge our existing perceptions and encourage effective adaptations. “Change is going to happen whether we like it or not.”

Kim Presley will present manipulated paintings and 3-dimensional work acknowledging the power of the landscape to regenerate and our efforts to bring about positive changes to our natural world.
