Gazing at the sky is a visceral and ancient method of inquiry, for reasons both practical (storms ahead?) and profound. The shell of the sky that separates the earthly from the celestial is a portal to the fathomless unknown – a place that has been parsed and illuminated for millennia through the lenses of science, religion, poetry, and art. With the sky as jumping-off point, we’ve invited 20 visual artists- many of them current and former teachers with the San Francisco Arts Education Project- to share their visions of what resides above.

Val Britton: Impressions of Time

May 11 — July 17, 2021

Gallery Wendi Norris Online

Val Britton collects, cuts, paints, pastes, folds, and layers paper. Her practice is fundamentally tactile and reflects a long commitment to her medium. Originally trained as a printmaker, Britton meticulously builds paint and collage layers to create depth in her compositions with contrasting materials and techniques.

Impressions of Time, a video recently shot in Britton’s Portland, Oregon studio, provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the making of her newest body of work and the most in-depth look into her process to date.
