Her latest collection uses a trip to the Antarctic as a focus of her work while also informing on the ever evolving effects of climate change on the earth. Michele’s energetic and colorful figurative and abstract work takes cue from the vibrancy and emotion of color and shapes. Her current collection is a true representation of the creative work she does with both paint and fabric elements drawing inspiration from all facets of life.

Opening Reception: Drawn Together

Opening Reception, Friday, November 10, 2017, 6-9PM (all shows)
With music from Four Piece Supreme

Drawing is often seen as the preparation for a masterpiece – the precursor to a painting or formulation for a sculpture. However, the artists presented at FRANK Gallery in November and December are “drawn together” through the skill, beauty and mystery of their mixed media drawings and ceramics. Drawn Together features KiKi Farish and Jean LeCluyse, two highly skilled artists who elevate the art of drawing to create mesmerizing compositions full of intricate details and symbolism. Joined by mixed media ceramicist Aggie Zed, who creates fantastical creatures through the use of three dimensional lines and clay sculptures.
