Current & Upcoming Exhibits
Do you ever feel like you want to tear it all down and start over? This July at Make.Shift Gallery, five Bellingham-based artists explore the process of beginning again. Lurm (aka Adrien Converse), Johnny Gialanella, Karen Hanrahan, Jess Molnar, and Monica Ramey each bring a unique approach to the process of breathing new life into old objects and images.
For the month of August, Make.Shift Gallery is excited to present Narrative Anatomy, a group exhibit featuring works by Kelsey Skordal and Rosie Lockie, two Bellingham-based artists who work in alternative comics and painting. Their practice shares a commonality and a foundation in narrative, which can be both elaborate in construction (comic storytelling) and vague in suggestion (painting). Both artists will show original comic panels, paintings, and drawings that explore narrative on varying scales and scopes.
