    A painting series of vivid iconic imagery by solo artist Tara Blackwell Nov. 12 - Dec. 14, 2017
    Tara Blackwell grew up in a home teeming with differing artistic styles and modalities. The early deaths of her brother and father left her, a young painter, struggling to find her voice without her beloved teachers. In retrospect, processing these tragedies is what Tara, now a mature artist with a unique, exciting style, believes most accounts for the complexity and depth of her current work in which she employs bold colors, layers, and texture.

    In her debut CORNER STORE series, Tara utilizes her commercial design background to take us back to her childhood visits to the corner store for treats with her older brother. By recreating familiar logos and packaging into a visual narrative of her youth, she transports us back to our own-offering us a touchstone to pure childhood joy. Exploring vintage imagery with subversive wit and whimsy, she transforms symbols of the past into a contemporary artistic vision. For more information on the artist:
