It's hard to contain my excitement about our upcoming Patterns/Textures show featuring Maija Fiebig and Sofia Barao. I found Maija through her best friend and my acquaintance, Jenee Halstead, an amazing Boston-based folk musician. Maija did the artwork for Jenee's new CD "A River Grace." Maija's quite successful in her hometown of Seattle where she shows regularly with G. Gibson Gallery. You can watch a wonderful little video about Maija here. Her work, with its vibrant patterns, is a perfect compliment to Sofia's romantic collage paintings. Sofia lives in a little town outside of Paris, France. She utilizes old photos, letters, music sheets, and other found papers for her textured paintings which she says are an attempt to "keep a trace; of time and of people, to work with the memories, to reinvent a story, to rebuild a past, maybe my own." Join us for the opening reception this Friday Sept 5th from 6-8:30 p.m. Also, hear a free concert by Jenee in the gallery backyard Friday Sept 19th 6-8 p.m. Reservations required.
