Sur­face & Depth: Kap­py Trigg and Tom Small

A recep­tion for the artists Tom Small and Kathryn Trigg will be held today, Fri­day, Sep­tem­ber 8th 4 ‑7 pm at Water­works Gallery. The exhib­it fea­tur­ing Smal­l­’s Sculp­ture and Trig­g’s Mono­type Paint­ings, Sur­face Depth: St​one and Paper, will con­tin­ue through Sep­tem­ber 8 — 30.
Tom Small’s sculp­tures are inspired direct­ly from the land. For Tom, spe­cif­ic locales in the North­west pro­vide the vision for the work. These locals include the islands, the beach­es, the rivers, and the moun­tains. This show will include recent draw­ings, carv­ings in stone and wood, and glass castings.
Kathryn Trigg cre­ates alche­my using her mono­types to com­pose her paint­ings. A mono­type is a unique work on paper cre­at­ed using a print­ing press. Using a col­or­field approach to the art work, Kathryn com­bines count­less lay­ers of paint, inks and paper to the sur­face of wood pan­els. This approach cre­ates a form of illu­sion with­in her work. As Kathy stat­ed” Every­one needs a lit­tle mag­ic in their lives”.
Recep­tion for the artists Fri­day, Sep­tem­ber 8th 4 ‑7 pm.
