Archway Gallery presents "Metamorphosis," featuring new works by Joan Laughlin and Liz Conces Spencer. They will also introduce the seedling giveaway and the auction tree donated by Trees for Houston.

In the exhibition, the artists’ observations of and reactions to the constancy of change in the natural world are interpreted in paintings, drawings, mosaics, and sculpture.

Laughlin is inspired by daily walks through the Heights area, observing ever-evolving gardens and foliage with seasonal change. This practice has become a metaphor for her reflections about the nature of life in general and her conclusion that “the only constant in life is change.” Her intricate works are meditative studies on the present, which is fleeting and transitional.

The works of Spencer are also rooted in the natural environment, but from a perspective that vibrates with interpretive patterning and color. Current works are mosaics, glass, wood, and paint in compositions that unveil layers of being in stages of time, or as she has described the revelation, “the aching mystery of infinite change.”

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until May 2.
