Ellen Solari art

This exhibition highlights the work of Massachusetts artists Ellen Solari ( and Miranda Updike ( Updike's paintings show the physicality of people joining together in an era of hi-tech isolation. Solari's structures combine both traditional/non-traditional basketry techniques creating a paradox between the expected and non-expected.
