GAC Upper Gallery exhibit: “Masks & Images from Dreams”
This October at the Gunnison Arts Center, explore a dreamlike world of two-dimensional and three-dimensional landscapes carved into leather and painted light onto photo paper. The joint exhibit, “Masks & Images from Dreams,” will feature mask maker Joe Peterson and historical photographer Kimbre Woods. Joe’s very own dreams inspire uniquely shaped wearable masks complete with texture and color. Kimbre’s retro images create an old fashioned and dreamy feeling, while using many old photography developing processes such as cyanotype. This exhibit will intermingle and explore the dream world with the viewer’s reality.
