Prayer Pieces & Toaster Ovens
Please note, this event has expired.
Enjoy an art opening featuring new work from Laura BenAmots.
The Machine Shop is proud to present Prayer Pieces & Toaster Ovens. Largely driven by the codependent tensions between strength and vulnerability, belonging and isolation, Laura BenAmots’s paintings, drawings and installation projects make it possible for her to approach the varied dimensions of human frailty.
Prayer Pieces & Toaster Ovens showcases work produced during Laura’s three-month Machine Shop Studio Residency. The works explore industry, oil, water, bones and “sacred objects”. Inspired by a pilgrimage to Standing Rock last year, she continues to honor and discuss tensions between sustaining natural resources and industrial forces.
A percentage of proceeds from sold artwork will be donated to the Natural Defense Resource Council.
Join the shop for the opening reception of this work on February 2 from 6 to 9 p.m. Parking is available and refreshments will be served. The work will be on display until February 28. Please contact the Machine Shop to make an appointment to view the work.
