Posted in Events, MKT BAR, News

Explore two series in one exhibit.

“Source” by Rebecca J. Hopp

Rebecca J. Hopp’s mixed media photography explores her experience with agriculture and the source of our food. She recalls farming through her camera, conversation, and physical assembly. The objects she creates transcend the individual photograph and allude to her source, her past, and the past of farmers with which she interacts.

“From Behind the Bar” by Christa Monster

In these playful, whimsical works, artist and bartender Christa Monster takes a step away from her monsters, and instead explores light-hearted colorful works, which have inspirations from behind the bar.

OPENING RECEPTION: Meet the artists on Wednesday, February 5, 2014, 6-9PM
EXHIBITION: February 5 – March 8, 2014
COST: Free admission. Food, drinks and all artwork will be available for purchase.

Exhibition organized by Megan Badger.
