Breakthrough: Opening Reception and Artists Talk at

This event has already happened

"Breakthrough," an exhibition of new works by contemporary West Coast artists Cassandria Blackmore and Michael Schultheis, opens with a reception on Jan. 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. Blackmore and Schultheis will present an artist talk beginning at 6:45 p.m.

Based in Santa Barbara, California, Cassandria Blackmore creates colorful abstract works from shattered and meticulously reconstructed reverse glass paintings. Seattle-based artist, Michael Schultheis, builds his compositions through successive layers of mathematical notations and geometric forms that collectively appear suspended in ethereal spaces masterfully rendered in acrylic paint.

Though they work in diverging techniques and media, the pairing of works by Blackmore and Schultheis reveals the beauty of controlled chaos and the remarkable tension between restrained and intuitive gesture. This will be LRFA's first exhibition featuring the work of Cassandria Blackmore.

"Breakthrough" will be on view through Feb. 10, 2018.
