Canopies Opens June 27 at Prographica Gallery from 2-4pm

“Canopies,“ new work by Kimberly Clark, Eric Elliott, Tamblyn Gawley, and Evelyn Woods is showing at  Prographica Gallery, 3419 East Denny Way, from June 27 – August 26. The show opens Saturday June 27 with a reception from 2 to 4 pm. “Canopy” connotes a covering, like an awning or a blind.  Evelyn Woods presents a very complete description of her subject; it is her intention to evoke the presence of trees with such clarity that you can almost smell them. But in the work of Eric Elliott you need to really look for a moment to see the foliage. Then the sense of space, volume, and “breathable air” makes itself known. It is the sense of an “abstract whole” that appeals in the work of Tamblyn Gawley. She assembles multiple small panels, each with a minutely rendered portion of a tree, to form a whole allowing the viewer to see the “abstraction” prior to the tree. For Kimberly Clark, the canopy is of less interest than the volume of space it encloses.  She makes “looking up” tangible and invites the viewer to appreciate the space and breathe the air. Shown: Kimberly Clark, First Fall
