BENJAMIN TIMPSON: Metamorphosis
September 13 – October 4, 2019

Opening Reception + Art Talk:
September 13, 5:00-7:00PM (Artist Talk: 5:30PM)

Benjamin Timpson is an artist specializing in interdisciplinary mediums including photography, painting, and sculpture.

The butterfly wing is fragile and exquisite. Using the wings of butterflies, artist Benjamin Timpson creates portraits of Native American women who have been murdered, missing, or domestically abused. These symbolic butterfly wing portraits transform hard psychological truths into messages of beauty, healing, hope, and spirituality.

This exhibition is generously sponsored by Summers Moore.
