PRESS RELEASE: Erika White and Carin Lilly at Davis Studio Gallery in Burlington

Opening Reception:
February 4, 2011 from 5-8pm

Davis Studio Gallery,
404 Pine Street, Burlington

Artists Erika White and Carin Lilly embrace their lives and all that it entails in this mixed media exhibition. Using more traditional methods of painting and photography, as well as found objects and other forms of mixed media, they explore the idea of finding creativity in the everyday of life. As mothers of young children, finding a space, both physical and emotional, to be creative amongst sippy cups and strewn toys can be difficult. Instead of fighting the inevitable, they choose to embrace it, finding inspiration in the objects and the brainstorms that come from their small sidekicks, sometimes including them collaboratively. Legos and princesses find their way into the artwork, whether literally or more subtly, through color and shape, as the two artists engage in their own form of play.
