Lesperance, Crawford, and Wohlford
Cindy Lesperance’s work will explore the abstractness of the earth when viewed from an aerial perspective. Lesperance uses encaustic medium (wax with pigment) to create smooth polished sections of color and then adds her signature drop technique to provide interesting textural areas. Each work becomes a composition of colors, shapes and textures.
Cathie Crawford’s color reduction woodcuts “deal with a particular feeling or emotion I have toward my immediate environment. I have always been attracted to water, seeking it out for its restorative powers. Water represents a powerful life-giving force, a source of replenishment, rejuvenation and renewed energy.” With the theme of water present in every print, viewers will find them calming and peaceful.
Dawn Wohlford uses found objects such as plastic parts leftover from manufacturing or bicycle inner tubes to create jewelry and sculptural art. Red and black plastic parts lend themselves to creating bold, playful patterns for decorative applications. Wohlford will also show some of her handmade paper creations, which she is known for.
