WAITSBURG- WAG, the Waitsburg Art Garden, is hosting Walla Walla Artist Robin Leventhal on June 2 and 3, Friday and Saturday.
Leventhal is a chef instructor at the Wine Country Culinary Institute by day, and a trained artist at her core. Her current work combines elements from nature, including stones, seed pods, and shells, with manmade fragments holding paint and rust from the past.
"Erosion, oxidation and patinas each have a story to tell," wrote Leventhal in her artist statement provided to The Times.
"All life is held to an ultimate truth, the inevitability of a temporal end. Throughout our journey, experiences become markers in our own history, fragments of a larger story" she continued.
Her mixied media pieces have a visual and tactile story to tell, and the artist encourages viewers to, "Please touch the art."
The exhibit is part of downtown Waitsburg's Happening events.
