Aries Rising

Exhibition:
March 11–May 20
Irvine Fine Arts Center Main Gallery + Gallery 2

Opening Reception:
March 11, 2–4 p.m. 

Rooted in the generative characteristics of spring, Aries Rising presents a collection of sculptural and two-dimensional artworks made of metal, fiber, and mixed media whose sensibilities reflect an organic source. Featured artists in the exhibition share a curiosity about
human perception as it relates to the environment, both natural and manmade, reflected in their manipulation
of material and form.

North Node 

Exhibition:
March 11–May 20
Irvine Fine Arts Center Gallery 1

Opening Reception:
March 11, 2–4 p.m. 

The paintings and mixed media artworks presented in North Node reflect a sense of wonder, urgency, and speculation regarding rapidly shifting ecological and social patterns. Each exhibiting artist works to draw viewers’ attention to micro and macro shifts that affect the order of our lives and the habitats we knowingly and unknowingly affect.
