THE CENTER FOR PERFORMING ARTS GALLERY — THE MONTH OF DECEMBER
The Center for the Performing Arts Gallery at Paradise Valley Community College is pleased to
announce Tracing Absence: Work by Jessica Palomo. The artwork will be on view from November 2 - December 18, 2017. The reception is December 6, at 6:30pm. The reception is open to the public; light refreshments will be served. The CPA Gallery is open and free to the public, Monday through Friday, 9am - 5pm. Parking is available on the NE side of the CPA.
Jessica Palomo’s work is a response to the grief of losing a loved one, a trauma that can overload and fracture the conscious mind, causing a shattered emotional state. Through abstraction and mark-making, she explores the dynamics of this ruptured reality that place identity and emotion in a liminal, ambiguous space.
