Evanescent Energy by Blue Mitchell combines photography, acrylic lifts and open flame to create dreamlike imagery that will lure you in for a closer look. Combining these different artistic elements gives the pieces an incredible texture and aesthetic. We are extremely pleased, honored even, to have the show mounted on maple Plywerk. The show will be at Lightbox Photographic Gallery in Astoria OR from August 13th - October 2nd with an opening reception from 5 - 9 on the night of the 13th.
