Solo Exhibition
Eternal by KEIGHT MACLEAN
October 4th – October 28th

Working from historical references of women long passed but forever enduring, this body of work remixes and re-imagines their portraits through Keight MacLean’s personal lens. Enlivening the traditional imagery with a playfulness in contemporary media, including spray paint and paint marker and experimental applications of traditional media, including gold leaf, MacLean explores her own place in the ever progressing timeline of history hopeful these newly created images will be carried forward and remembered. 

“Reflecting on how many surviving portraits of women we have vs. how many of their stories remain, I am enchanted by the fact that their images now live on in families and serve as an eternal connection between past and present.” -Keight MacLean

Preview and presale for this exhibit will take place Tuesday, October 4th and Wednesday,  October 5th

Exhibit opens to the general public for purchasing on Thursday, October 6th.
