Opening Reception – Community Gallery Exhibition – Tim Sheesley

 In
Join us for an opening reception for Things Kept (July 26-August 25, 2024)

Things Kept is an exhibition of lithographs by Tamarind Master Printer, Tim Sheesley. The work represents an exploration of color and compositions that revere simple objects.  The form of a primitive cabinet sets the stage for objects to be examined. Variations in colors and textures add mystery and emotion to memory of the objects.
