Laurie M. Goddard: On Hands and Knees
October 15 - November 3, 2017
Encaustic and mixed media works created from real and imaginary game boards.
Reception: Sunday, October 15, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
These are imaginary board games, calling us out to play. They were conceived and executed over a few years while renovating a barn studio. They have checkered histories, some have missing pieces, they often have vague rules. Some of the boards are actual, some are depictions reconstructed from long languid talks with denizens of odd places I've visited.
