Whisper Well: March 13 - April 10, 2015


Please join us for the opening reception of "Whisper Well" this Friday, March 13, 7-11pm. With a special performance at 8:30pm.

The work featured in "Whisper Well" finds beauty in the overlooked and discarded. Sharing an unspoken sensibility, the four female artists take pause to examine and give new life to the various materials and moments found in their respective studio practices. These private acts of making, whether tied to personal association or to the artists hand,
transcend the individual experience through a universal compulsion to see, touch, and feel our way to understanding.

Pontiac, MI based ceramicist, Lindsey Dezman's minimal works feature recurring forms and materials that serve as a visual record of the repetition of her daily practice.

Kim Hildebrandt of Wyandotte, MI will be doing a live performance of "Reach" a work that pushes her physical limitations and leaves behind a mapping of her failed attempts. Kim's performance will begin at 8:30pm.

Detroit, MI based sculptor, Kylie Lockwood's work is influenced by the body and the ambiguous spaces that exist between inside and outside.

Rachel Reynolds, Hamtramck, MI based painter and mixed media artist will be exhibiting an installation inspired by imagery collected anonymously in public spaces.

On display through April 10, 2015. From March 20 - April 10, Butter will be open Fridays from 1-5pm and Saturdays from 1-3pm with additional hours by appointment.
