Three Journeys:
Betsy Evans, Cary Reeder and Alexandra Sivov

On view September 8 - October 28, 2018

Opening Reception: September 8, 2018 | 6-8 PM 

Gallery 200 in The Silos at Sawyer Yards

Three Journeys brings together a ceramicist, a painter, and a printmaker, three women working in three different media whose work is connected by the theme of the journey. For each artist, this theme has a unique meaning. For Evans, the journey focuses on her physical and mental health since battling cancer. For Reeder, the meaning is similar, with her work inspired by the journey from loss to renewal after being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. The journey for Sivov, who has moved around all of her life, is about finding belonging and a sense of home.
