CENTER GALLERY:  Anna Widman | Angry Cookie
Anna is an Alaskan artist and educator living and working in Kenai. “My work compares physical encounters in nature to the landscape of body by mapping my diagnosis and recovery from anorexia nervosa. Strenuous running for pleasure in the earth’s harshest conditions is translated through photography, journaling, and matter painting. I grind nature into paint and layer it with synthetic materials. I crush, hammer, detonate and stitch in order to paint the unforgiving climates in the mind of an anorexic. Anger directed at anorexia is shown through dramatic demolition techniques, primarily explosives. Wholeness is shown through the labor of mending and painting anew. Angry Cookie brings together elements ranging from despair to serenity demonstrating that hardships can be a path to balance and joy. My work is creation through destruction.”

NORTH GALLERY : Emma Reynolds | Under the Same Sky
Emma Reynolds is a full time printmaker living and working in London, where expansive skies, birdlife and a focus on Urban Oasis within the heart of the city form a large part of her work. For this exhibition Emma has pursued her fascination with the sky and left the city behind. Her specialism is fine art screenprinting, where she likes to mix between traditional printing methods and more experimental techniques, often using a paintbrush to paint and mix colours directly onto the silk screen. She uses multiple blends within her prints, to create depth and tone lending some of her prints a visual language more often found in paintings.
