artstream presents "Spring is in the Air", an exhibition of original works by Wisconsin artist Emily Marie Cox.
This series explores the dichotomy between winter and spring and the different expressions used to describe the emergence of spring. Each piece is started with the same screen-printed base layer on each one to highlight the repetitious nature of seasons and illustrated with its partnered word. This collection of work reminds us that there is always a winter but with winter, comes spring. Life is an unpredictable journey, but we can always count on spring to breathe fresh air on our lives.
The opening will be Saturday May 7th from 10am to
4pm and on display through May 31st.
On Saturday May 7th from 10am to 4pm, artstream will be giving out a free gift to everyone stopping by to celebrate National Comic Book Day! Local illustrative artists will be exhibiting affordable originals and prints.
