In absolute timeless wonder

Reception & Gallery Talk:
Thursday, February 15th

Reception 2-4
Gallery Talk 2:30 AND 3:15

Works displayed in the exhibition are heavily influenced by traditional and contemporary Mesoamerican art, and the numerous trips Michael Lorefice has made to Mexico to travel and make work in the country. Imagery in the show is drawn from these travels as well as the urban and outlying landscapes near Lorefice’s home in Seattle, WA. These drawings serve as living documents to the beauty, harshness, and tenacity of the natural environment.
As drawings they are more than records; they attest to the enduring connection of humans to the land, the fragile relationship that must endure, and the constant state of flux that we are surrounded by.
