Rowing By Byzantium
Janet Norris and TaVee McAllister Lee

September 1 - October 1, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, September 2nd from 6-9 pm

Keats' poem, titled Sailing To Byzantium is a poignant lament in which Byzantium is a symbol of loss - a lost civilization, the loss of the body in this world, the destination for the final transformation into something glorious and eternal. The works of both artists address beauty, longing and loss in a poetic and symbolic way. Janet Norris will exhibit a number of her paintings alongside TaVee McAllister Lee’s esoteric, spare and lyrical collage installations.
