Join us to meet artist Chloe York and hear her talk about her Third Floor West Gallery exhibit, Thalasso. The event is free to attend. Chloe will talk about her work and her process as well as answer questions.

From the Artist:

My goal is to visually change objects and forms deemed ugly or untouchable by society to suit its standard of what beauty is, and to make a statement about the manner in which we decorate ourselves. My strong use of pattern and decorating suit this idea by adding visual interest to the flatness and simplicity of the pieces while maintaining a focus on aspects of strong ornamentation and the exploration of what beauty is and what makes something pleasing to the eye.
