“Object Permanence 4” by Kellie Canon

Walker Fine Art has a new show opening this Friday May 20, and it’s called “Altering Natural Perceptions.” Featuring works from Lee Harkin, Derrick Breidenthal, Kellie Cannon, Karin Schminke, Don Quade, Norman Epp, and Bonny Lhotka, it’s a lovely and tasteful presentation that explores various natural experiences altered in some way via media or stylistic approaches. That’s a mouthful, but a tasty one when you consider some of the talent on show. Take for instance, Cannon’s use of oxidized steel plates as ink matrix for her rich intaglio monoprints, serving as an exploration on permanence and mutability. Or Lhotka’s digital photographic collage that layers images of nature like a dream, fleeting and fading. “Altering Natural Perceptions” opens Friday May 20 5 – 9 PM and runs through July 9.
