Artist Aimee Cardoso's 'Compulsion' exhibit opens Feb. 3

Don’t miss Aimee Cardoso’s upcoming exhibition at the Bernice Coulter Templeton Gallery Feb. 3 through March 31.

"Compulsion is a group of new works which are direct depictions of my day to day brain functions. My work is an escape from the two lives I lead as a museum arts educator, and arts leader in the community. I am constantly torn between the two sides of my brain: left and right. That duality represented in these fabric jumbles; some are more tightly rendered, while others are looser, giving an unfinished look. I find comfort in these familiar folds of fabric. The chance to lose control in these paintings in ways I cannot in other aspects of my life is freeing. The loss of control and the creation of imperfection makes the real more interesting, giving the viewer, and myself, a place for the mind to get lost."

-Aimee Cardoso

Opening reception
