Exhibition | Anneli Skaar: Dandelion Life

June 16 - July 16, 2022

Anneli Skaar’s Dandelion Life is a pandemic reflection on finding the comforts in standing still where you are. The work exalts familiarity and the mundane, and makes sacred the familiar views of being home. 

Join us for an artist talk with Anneli Skaar at the gallery Sunday, July 10, 2022 at 4pm.
