Artist Priscilla Steele explores the most basic aspects of being human—the beauty, grace & power within. While much has already been drawn, painted, and sculpted by great, historic masters, Priscilla’s pursuit to find meaning in life presents us with a visual narrative of the intricacies of human existence. There is an elusive sense of “wholeness” that comes when in the work we see the complexity found in life.
Beautiful Complexities hosted by Gallery C, features mixed media drawings by Priscilla Steele. A collection of figurative pieces as well as botanical images will be on display. Meet the artist during the Opening Reception, Friday, January 24, 6-9pm at Gallery C. The show will run through March 2, 2014.
