November 9 – December 23, 2007 / Opening Reception: Fri. November 9, 7-10pm

Gallery Imperato is pleased to announce an exhibition of works by Sasha Blanton and Karen Swenholt. In METAMORPHIC, both artists create works of art dealing with the human experience and transformation. Whether layered, dripping paintings constructed on plywood panels or three-dimensional terracotta forms, the results are certainly rough-hewn and provocative representations of life, death and social struggles.
