Judith Kruger 
An Alchemic View

November 1 - November 29

Reception November 1, 3:00-6:00 p.m.

Gallery Tour with Judith Kruger at 3:00 p.m.

Expanding on the traditional process of Nihonga, a Japanese style of painting in which the pigments are derived from nature, Judith Kruger pushes the medium into abstraction. In paintings, drawings and mono-prints, this exhibition explores the world around us. Though they are not particular depictions of landscape, the work is, nonetheless, about the world around us.
