The Past Present - Work by Molly Bosley and Athena Petra Tasiopoulos

January 20, 2017 - April 8, 2017

Opening Reception: Friday, January 20 5-8 p.m.

The Past Present is a two-person exhibition that uses metaphorical objects to explore our humanity and unpack our relationship to the past. Athena Petra Tasiopoulos' reinvents forgotten antique portraits allowing haunting new identities to emerge which transcend time and connect us to a forgotten medium. Molly Bosley's delicate narrative driven papercuts explore common discarded artifacts and the deterioration of American culture. Both artists skillfully connect us to the past and comment on our present by using familiar yet meaningful objects in which we have shared history and dialogue.
