Teresa Oaxaca: “Misfits”

April 6, 2016 - May 1, 2016

Exhibit dates: Wednesday, April 6–Sunday, May 1
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 7, 6:30–8:00 pm

Teresa Oaxaca’s recent paintings explore themes of clowns, dolls, human effigies, and painted faces. She explains that the work for this exhibit “integrates the human passions and emotions with allegorical storytelling.” Oaxaca used traditional techniques and time-honored media such as oil paint or charcoal to represent somewhat less conventional subjects. All paintings in this exhibit will also be displayed in unique artist designed and painted frames.
