Artists Talk and Opening Reception: Shirley Irons & Jeri Coppola
May 18 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Against all we know about the artificiality of landscape, the man-madeness of it, there is a desire to escape back to that imaginary Eden, when nature was all and perfect. Jeri Coppola and Shirley Irons use photography, painting, books and sculpture to simultaneously include and exclude that desire. They use light, actual or represented, to create a sense of spirit, a sense of hope. Repetition is used to keep that sense of spirit away from reference to the sublime or grandiose that images from nature can evoke. Artists Talk, followed by an opening reception with complimentary wine from Upstream Wines and Spirits.
