Tom Edwards, "Dreams and Shadows"

Saturday, February 15, 2020 - 3:00pm to 6:00pm
Kehler Liddell Gallery
873 Whalley Avenue
New Haven, CT 06515

Tom Edwards takes a look at what goes unnoticed in Dreams and Shadows. The artist states that his “primary concern is the visual development of images that describe dream-related memory and a nocturnal atmosphere.”Presenting five triptychs developed in the realm of twilight and moonlight, and another created around memories, Edwards pairs these with a group of etchings printed on plaster that are related to the current political climate around border walls. The created dichotomy begs the viewer to consider the multifaceted darkness the artist is investigating on both a personal and national scale.

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 15th, 3-6pm, with Artist Talks at 3pm
