haleARTS holdFri 10.19 HaleARts CorySewelsons an opening reception for a new exhibition featuring works by artists Cory Sewelson and Michele Troxell.

Sewelson and Troxell blur the lines of reality as they deliver their own takes on the natural world around us.

Working with oils, Sewelson (see image, right), paints surrealist landscapes that explore the thin walls that divide the “natural world” (of the earth) and “built world” (buildings, cities, institutions or ideas).

A self taught artist, Troxell, labors over stone to sculpt the animal kingdom through her eyes.
