. The show represents the artists' perceptions of reality, ones that are different than the norm; both use various mediums to express how they view contemporary society.
Davenport utilizes narrative and observation to represent her observations on the human condition with large scale works, like "Deflying Death." Davenport uses her art as a metaphor and “a cautionary tale about American society."
Heyward uses familiar images and juxtaposes them in unusual ways, creating unsettling dreamscapes that somehow fit together. The shocking nature of the works create a narrative, each piece helping the viewer experience the collection as a grouping, and explains other images in the exhibit.
Davenport will give an artist's talk on Sun. April 2 at 2 p.m. and Heyward will give a talk on Sun. April 30 at 2 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.
You can check out work from artists Rebecca Davenport and Cabell Heyward starting this Fri. March 24 from 5-7 p.m. at the City Gallery as part of the new exhibition,
