|| A Particular Point of View | Ruth Geneslaw
Opening Saturday Sept 12, 2-5pm
on view thru Oct 4, 2015
Geneslaw's folk art sculptures created of wood and paint conveys her point of view on all things political and the human condition with humor, pathos and her passion for language in a literal sense.
"My carved and painted wood vignettes serve as vehicles for the exploration of social, political and environmental themes. I seek to address the hypocrisy, ambivalence, contradiction and hubris of events that touch our lives." Ruth Geneslaw
