In this new collection of paintings and ceramics at Kravets Wehby GalleryAlison Blickle continues to expand her world of women engaged in mysterious ceremonies and quiet performances.

As a new mother, Blickle found inspiration in the extraordinary women in her life, from her midwife to her Wiccan herbalism school sisters. White vessels repeated in Blickle’s imagery suggest the cosmic egg, carefully tended to by the women who inhabit her scenes. The harlequin diamond pattern alludes to The Fool character from the classic Tarot deck, whose blissfully naive forays and journeys collide with Blickle’s own.

There will be a reception for the artist on Thursday, October 13 from 6-8pm.
