Artwork by Joshua Eller, Olivia Jenson and Ashley Kolka-Lee
will be featured at ArtReach St. Croix
Finding Place is a common theme but with unique meaning for artists Joshua Eller, Olivia Jenson and Ashley Kolka-Lee. Their work in collage and pottery will be on view at the galleries at ArtReach St. Croix.
For Eller, Finding Place involves examining his own personal and cultural identity through collage as place relates to migration. Jenson’s functional pottery is created with emphasis on finding time and place for daily rituals. And Kolka-Lee explores under-examined human stories and the evolution of land use in her cut paper depictions of places within the St. Croix River watershed.
“Finding Place will be an intimate exhibit both in the subject matter and scale of the work by Joshua, Olivia and Ashley,” say Heather Rutledge, executive director of ArtReach St. Croix. “Examining or creating a sense of place is a common theme among the artists who live and work in the St. Croix Valley, but these three artists take this theme to a very personal level.”
In an effort to maintain a safe environment for the public to view art by local and regional artists, visitors are strongly encouraged to wear a mask and are asked to practice social distancing in the gallery.
