The Bigger Picture Kim Alsbrooks, Mary DeWitt, Elise Dodeles, James Doherty

On luscious Mylar, Mary DeWitt paints bold, haunting portraits of people who are often forgotten behind locked doors. All of these artists’ subjects easily invite the viewer to ponder the much bigger picture that lies just below the surface. A full press release about the exhibition is available here.
