Quinn infuses images pulled from waking like with visual rhythms inspired by jazz pianos and trumpet blares to tell stories from her mind eye’s view. Made of acrylic paint and cut-paper collage, these paintings exist between the worlds of waking and dreaming, hovering on the jungle line.
The exhibit will run July 7 through September 1. The opening reception is Saturday, July 7, 6-8 p.m.
