David W Simpson The West: A Fragment
Kathryn Altus New Paintings
June 1 – July 1
Traveling east to Wyoming to find ‘the American West,’ David W Simpson takes an archeological approach, collecting sagebrush, cow dung, bones, branches and dry grasses to create photograms and molded paper works.
Working from memory and alluding to the history of the Northwest, Altus creates ethereal compositions with subtle gradations of color and a sense of near-infinite space.
