Franne Lee's The Nature of Things at Family Wash 

Art That'll Give You Wood

Art That'll Give You Wood
Lee's new solo show features images of birds and other animals, all painted on wood remnants from old cabinets and barn siding. A painting of a waddling duck against a stained wood door has a rustic, folksy vibe. In another work, two white baby herons stand out against a backdrop of old, cracked paint, suggesting an almost mystical cycle-of-life theme. Lee uses warm earth tones for an organic feel, and manages to find that often-elusive balance between arty and aesthetically pleasing. The afternoon reception will feature a set of ambling roots rock from The Joiners.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: April 7. Continues through May 15, 2009
