Thomas Post will exhibit altered photographs and Sara Post will show cold wax paintings and watercolor drawings at The Artery gallery Friday, Feb. 8, through Tuesday, March 5. The artists will be honored at a reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8, as part of the Second Friday ArtAbout.
Thomas’ work tells a story by combining elements of various photographs and seeing how they relate to each other in a new context. The finished photograph expresses an idea or a feeling, or points to something sensed but unseen.
Sara is interested in painting as a physical presence — in textures, surface variations, interactions between paint, sand, wax and paper. This work interchanges imagery and abstraction in an exploration of a sense of place and the accidents of placement.
The couple’s photo collages and mixed-media works celebrate the real and the imagined nature of place.
The Artery is at 207 G St. in downtown Davis. Regular hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. Sundays and until 9 p.m. on Fridays.
