A Space Between Art Exhibit

The A Space Between art exhibit at Del Ray Artisans gallery focuses on shadows, negative space, and often overlooked components of a scene. After two years separated by literally six feet—and many centuries of burying loved ones six feet under—the concept of space gave artists a chance to explore themes of isolation beyond the physical separations of our shared experience.

Join us on opening day, Friday, August 5 between 12-9pm for the widest selection of artwork. Mark your calendar or set a reminder through Eventbrite. The artworks feature the shadows cast on subjects and the negative spaces revealing previously unseen images to help us visualize empathy and compassion for seeing the same thing differently.

Fitting beautifully into the space during the exhibit are several workshops, including:

“A Space to Clean” Soap-making Workshop on Saturday, August 6 from 10am-1pm;
Everyday Abstracts a la El Anatsui Workshop on Saturday, August 13 from 6-8pm;
Quilt Patch Mosaic Workshop on Tuesday, August 16 from 6:30-8:30pm;
Playing with Resin Workshop on Sunday, August 21 from 6-9pm; and
Victorian Inspired Earrings Workshop on Saturday, August 27 from 10am-12pm.
