Opening Reception: Friday March 10, 2017, 7 – 8:30 pm

Mary Shivers presents a series of paintings that place recognizable images in otherworldly context using layers of color and ambiguous settings, highlighting the depth of her design skill and use of perspective. Loveland artist Shivers paints animals and human figures, elongated and upended, that burst outward from a multi-colored, dreamlike landscape. Her synthesis of jagged edges and smooth organic forms creates an unexpected visual unity within her compositions, leaving viewers both invigorated by their energy and soothed by a beautiful balance of color and form.
