Sayaka Ganz: Reclaimed Creations

June 28 – September 2, 2019

Opening Reception with Artist: 
Thursday, June 27, 2019, 6 - 8 pm

Sayaka Ganz utilizes reclaimed plastic household objects like brush strokes which appear visibly unified at a distance though separate at close proximity; she describes her style as “3-D impressionism”. Ganz’s aim is to impart new life to the items by transforming them into wildlife forms in full motion- including horses, birds, swimming polar bears, and “Uta” a humpbacked whale.
