Fresh A.I.R. Gallery cordially invites you to Paintings in Paper by Elizabeth Haworth-Wagner. Please join us for an opening reception on Wednesday, June 22, 2016 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Paintings in Paper will be on view at the Fresh A.I.R. Gallery from June 22 through July 29, 2016. Fresh A.I.R. Gallery will host an artist’s talk with Elizabeth on the final day of her exhibit.
Elizabeth Haworth-Wagner is a Columbus-based fiber artist whose painterly collages explore connections between physical and spiritual worlds, including questions about life, death, the afterlife, and rebirth. In 2013, Elizabeth lost her husband of 37 years. After his sudden death, she suffered from the effects of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and a diagnosed condition known as “Broken Heart Syndrome.” Her artwork has been a crucial part of her recovery, she says.
Elizabeth writes, “Through art, I have found that there is always hope. I have learned that things aren’t always what they seem to be, and what appears to be an end may, in fact, be a door to a wonderful new beginning.”
