Under 9th Street by Kristen Peyton, oil on canvas, 18×24.
Presence, an exhibit of the works of Kristen Peyton. Kristen is a painter and printmaker working from observation and invention. “My work is a gesture of hospitality,” she says. “It is an invitation into the profound presence of a chosen visual moment . . . it’s what William Blake, the eighteenth-century poet, meant when he wrote, ‘To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wildflower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour.’” Show runs November 22 through December 22.
