"Last Light" and "Life Forms" exhibitions opens Friday, August 2 at 111 Minna Gallery

With bronzing powder, earth pigments, resin, acrylic, oil paints and other mixed media on canvas and birch panel, Ivy Jacobsen creates luminescent landscapes for “Last Light,” her solo exhibition in 111 Minna’s Second Street Gallery.

The companion exhibition, “Life Forms,” features paintings by Tobias Tovera in a collaborative show with fashion designer Abbey Glass and musician Tim Carr, which analyzes process and color through painting, fashion and music. 

At the opening reception beginning at 5 p.m. tonight, and during the run of “Life Forms,” Glass premieres seven of her dresses made with textiles informed by Tovera’s paintings from her freshly minted couture dress collection. Carr will also perform songs from his new album, “Through the Color.”
