The result will be a colorful, dynamic show, marrying and merging intricate patterns created by each artist. Works on paper, oil paintings, collages, wood wall sculpture and ceramics will be featured.

Ryann Cooley uses photographs to engage the viewer with an image both spatially and physically. Amber Cowan’s sculptural pieces are created through a process of flameworking, blowing, and finding second-life glass in flea markets.
