Summer 2016 Art History Events

Lucky Fortune: Mixed Media Work by Deborah Douglas
August 19 - September 17
opening reception Fiday, August 19  5-8pm

As a two-dimensional, mixed media artist, I work with a variety
of materials, including oil, enamel, watercolor, ink, graphite,
collage and printmaking. I have sought to develop a personal
vocabulary of imagery and mark making that speaks to my
interst in the balance of form and content.

Conceptually, my interests lie in the expansive issue of
domesticity: typically including references to food, sex,
relationships and to cultural and societal issues of gender and
sexual equality, etc.
