Atelier 6000 solo show

Opening Reception: Friday, Aug 7, 4-9 pm

A6 artist and COCC instructor Paula Bullwinkel features new prints, drawings, paintings and artist books for a solo exhibit, “Play it as it Lays.” The show opens in the A6 Gallery Friday, August 7 with a reception from 4-9 pm and runs through Saturday, August 29, 2015.

Bullwinkel’s art is dream-like and theatrical, colored by the artist’s years spent as a fashion photographer in London and New York City. “I paint heroines who balance feelings of marvel and mystery with feelings of conflict and uncertainty.”

The exhibit title comes from the 1970 novel Play It as It Lays by Joan Didion. Says Bullwinkel, “It is a dark novel, but the idea is you stay in the game using what you have. Play the hand you’ve been dealt—it’s stronger than you think.”

Bullwinkel will give an Art Talk at A6 on Tuesday, August 11 at 6 pm.
