Artist Wilhelmina Grant Presents "Climbing the Wall" Exhibit

Artist Wilhelmina Grant/SISTAAH Studio mounts a vibrant and colorful abstract art exhibition presented from an alternative perspective.  These wall scape reproductions are 24 x 36 inches in size and are the result of the artist’s experimentation in the medium of pigments and alcohol manipulated on glazed and unglazed ceramic substrates. 

The artist reception will include an artist talk by Wilhelmina Grant, joined by woodwind multi-instrumentalist, Willie Mack, who explores the relationship between the vibrations of color and sound to “play the paintings.” 

Open now. Ends August 6th, 2016.
