Kapp, Carson_Going Bananas_Acrylic on Canvas_30x48

1st Saturday – March

March 2, 10:00 am - 7:00 pm

Gallery Opening Reception from 4-7pm: 

March and April Exhibition Opening in The Founders Gallery – Going Bananas: Big and Bold! paintings by Carson Kapp. “What do you want to do with your one wild and precious life?” Our March-April exhibition artist, Carson Capp, finds great inspiration from this quote by Mary Oliver. Carson’s paintings offer you a chance to return to a place when you were young. She invites you to let her big and bold creations embrace your own wild and precious life and just go bananas! This spirit is on full display in her exhibition. Through painting, Carson welcomes her inner child as a connection to her true spirit – one curly headed girl playing with the magic of color while exploring wonky, whimsical, energetic worlds of her imagination. In her former life Carson was an architect concerned with structure, safety, and function. Her work was commercial, massive in scale and complex. Now, she practices going bananas – painting wildly with the pure joy and wonder of life. Opening from 4-7pm. Artist Talk 6pm. New paintings will be installed for the month of April. Exhibition through April 28.
