Exhibition Information About the Artists & Artworks About the Guest Curator

Martha Clippinger + Jerstin Crosby: color/form, curated by Ashlynn Browning, showcases the artworks of Martha Clippinger and Jerstin Crosby, whose paintings, textiles, and sculptures boldly celebrate color and form. While they both use a vibrant, saturated palette and share a common aesthetic of organic/geometric hybrids, each artist navigates their creative process in very different ways.
