The Octagon Gallery at Patterson Library is pleased to present “Cecelia Ivy Price’s Recherche” February 16, Friday from 7-9 pm . The opening reception is free and open to the public. This exhibit will be on view until March 9,2018.
Recherche’ means rare, exotic, or obscure. The artist invites you to dance with darkness, become entangled in your own story, summon the demons of your nightmares and explore new worlds. Baroquesque bodies fill the canvas and entice viewers to become voyers of the moment. Let death tempt you however briefly and face your mortality.
With this collection I attempt to penetrate your imagination. The goal is for you to remember why you dream and remind you that life is short. Invoke the magick that has been missing since your childhood. Chase your fantasies, read comics and rediscover what made you ‘you’ before the material and the industrial world molded you, endlessly trying to consume your curious heart.
