Press release

Paulette Rosen's pencil drawings and boxes housing natural objects strive to record snippets of the natural world, especially birds. The arrangements intend to reference early natural history specimen collectors. Her miniature box dioramas present both a playful and serious perspective on life from the point of view of a 1" figure.

Karen Wheeler's assemblages feature handmade paper vessels combined with richly textured painted panels, drawings, digital collage and found objects. Her work contains references to architectural enclosures, altars and reliquaries as she creates objects that reflect her own sense of sacred spaces.

There will be an opening for this show this Saturday, from 3—6 p.m.
