“Relief” by Katie Maish
Until February 14
The “Relief” series features hand-cut paper and book cloth to represent the intersection between weight, permanence and precision, and the ephemeral media used with delicacy and intentional lightness. Some pieces include historical maps layered with household domestic patterns. In others, hand-written passages from cherished books build three-dimensional landforms that assume their shape from the ink on the page. Every piece represents ideas that demand space and attention.
Items from the “Relief” series will be on display and for sale at our store until February 14.
Eclectic Eye will be hosting a reception on Friday, January 5, from 6-8 p.m., where guests are welcome to mingle with the artists and check out what’s on display.
