Kris Wenschuh’s series of paintings, “Tenderness is Lighter Than Air” is inspired by a period of 8 months that artist took to walk the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. It is an expression of the intense lightness that comes with tenderness, unencumbered by the stresses of “civilized” life, feeling connected to your surroundings and the universe.

Leslie Elliottsmith’s photographic assemblages speak to the frustration and resilience required to survive these American times of social warfare and to spring back from the ceaseless influx of information and misinformation.  Each piece delves into a view of personal space, environmental stewardship, and social expectations.
