You are invited to the opening reception for Helen Bayly's 'Raised on Promises', which will be the night of May 16th from 7pm-11pm. The art will be on view for the month of May.
Using classical imagery as a platform, Bayly discusses concepts of nostalgia, humor and American values. Bayly paints everyday language and pop culture imagery into classical format wherein the two seamlessly combine. In her art, the common place object becomes elevated and allows a contemporary language to become a part of the historical narrative. It borrows reverence and returns context.
