Opening event Friday, February 17th, 8pm-1am

Ruth Hardinger – “Eye of the Earth”
Ruth Hardinger’s work shares an affinity and respect that indigenous cultures had for the environment. Hardinger’s instinct is to dig deep; she plunges beyond aesthetics and processes to empower her stone, concrete, paper, graphite, and mixed media works with consciousness and memory. Each Hardinger work has many layers and probes themes that include time, death, causality – modern and ancient culture’s philosophies, psychologies, and geothermal strata – air, earth and water.
Opening reception Friday, February 17th, 6-9pm.
