May Show
Anne Peterson & Christine Raymond

Capitol Contemporary Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition for the month of May. Bold and Subtle features new work by Christine Raymond and Anne Peterson with sculpture by D’Arcy Bellamy. Raymond's new series, This Precious and Fragile Place, explores the unknown through the use of subtle and shifting colors in the painted panels. This is balanced by the quiet shimmer of hope in the gilded panels. Peterson's current body of work is her tribute to determination and creation.
