Mary Anne Barkhouse: Boreal Baroque Tonight

Mary Anne Barkhouse is having a reception for her recently set-up Esplande exhibition tonight entitled “Boreal Baroque”. This exhibition is filled with lots of animal-related imagery and sculpture (much like her other work). In this installation, she is taking her animal vision and placing them in an odd juxtaposition: seventeenth century ornamentals and furniture. The title itself alludes to Boreal Forest while Baroque refers to the seventeenth century court of Louis XIV.

Reception admission is free and the event itself will officially start at 7PM. The exhibition will remain viewable until April 1st, 200.
