Leslie Barlow: Space Between Us
Leslie Barlow is exhibiting “The Space Between Us” in Ridgewater Hutchinson’s Gallery until March 16th, 2018. It will travel to the Willmar Gallery of Ridgewater College and be on display from March 19th Until April 20th, 2018.
Barlow captures the joyful idea of family with Mixed Media paintings on panels and sewn canvas ovals. Using stylistic impulses that range from realism and expressionism, with degrees of finished qualities, Barlow celebrates multicultural families, by showing friends, neighbors, and other acquaintances she has met that all represent ideas about partnerships. Gay, straight, and interracial couples are shown in domestic settings, re-enforcing views of equality and love in modern families.
