With featured artist Rena Vandewater, and participating artists Thomas Bicak, Leslie Jay Bosch, Karen Clark, Carolyn Eardley, Debby Graf, Carolyn Greener, Shawn Hubbs, Len Klikunas, Patricia Koleini, Bonnie Liles, Betty Mallorca, Lawrence Manning, Jenn Pirente, Gary Richardson, Jill Storey, Angela Stout, Jessie Swimeley, Helen Wilson, Marcia Yiapan.

Khara Oxier: Osmosis

Through Feb. 24, 9 a.m.-9 p.m.


Drawing from her background in anthropology, Khara Oxier works to integrate concepts of human evolution, development, causation and adaptation. Her abstracted figures draw attention to the fluctuating subjective consciousness which actively involves a deep internal dialogue with external environments. The stylistic dualities create a multivalent viewing experience and Oxier’s mental environments encourage consideration of comfort in change, internal conflict, cyclical thought and the complexities of life.
