Allison Bogard Hall presents Alchemy Dreams at BAYarts. Join us fr an opening reception on Friday, June 7 from 5-8 PM in the Sullivan Family Gallery. The exhibit will then be open for public viewing Monday through Saturday, 10 AM – 3 PM through July 6.

Alchemy: the medieval process of transforming ordinary metals into gold. What does it mean to dream of it? In a series of new oil paintings by Allison Bogard Hall, the artist presents snapshot-like images combining landscapes and figures that take us deep into a world on the razor’s edge of reality. Each piece acts as a still from a larger narrative, moments captured and frozen in time. From a lone figure in the window to the sudden appearance of wings, the artist asks the viewer: What is real? What is transformed?
