Untethered, Stories Come Like Charms:

Barbara Balzer and Linda Hall

The works of Barbara Balzer and Linda Hall playfully draw on art history and mythology using ceramics and soft sculpture. Their fantastical and sometimes humorous works are being shown together for the first time, providing two distinct viewpoints that revisit age-old stories...

“As artists, we shepherd fragile ideas into intimate forms, both human and animal, both real and unreal.” - Balzer and Hall
