Opal Dust features Casey Watson depicting the sharp-edged task of portraying a soft exterior. Watson’s meticulous colored pencil and graphite drawings invite the viewer to unearth her treasures and inspect their rusted edges. Up close, petals, leaves and stems re-arrange themselves into kaleidoscopic wreaths. These newly forged orbs careen and breed, evoking ideas of natural symmetry and squished floral formations. From a distance, the same drawings take on new forms as fireworks, galaxies, and magnified molecules pop from the paper.

Show runs November 29-January 12, 2013
Artist Reception: December 1, 3-5pm
