Archway Gallery presents Cookie and Tom Wells: "Double Vision" opening reception
Known for her paintings of the figure, Cookie Wells takes a departure into nature and organic abstraction in "Double Vision." This direction started with her last show and the collaboration with Tom, her woodworking husband who will display recently created pieces of his stunning furniture. Cookie thinks some of her inspiration comes from the beautiful patterns in Tom’s veneer and the wonderful lines in his wood. During quiet walks along the oak tree-lined streets of their neighborhood, Cookie began observing the sculptural qualities of the large trees. She also views the figures in her paintings as sculptural shapes and integrates the figure with sculptural nature in some of the exhibition pieces.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until May 30.
