May 2013: Wes McClain | Kristin Tollefson | BAC Student Shows
May 3-June 3 | Reception 6-8 p.m. May 3
Since beginning his study of printmaking as a freshman in high school, Wes McClain has pursued the medium unrelentingly. Although he constantly experiments with new techniques and processes, his evolving technical expertise hasn’t come at the expense of a vividly insightful treatment of his favorite subjects: people.

An affinity for found materials blended with a love of our natural surroundings make Kristin Tollefson’s constructions instantly recognizable. In her latest work, Kristin takes her trademark woven wire new, softer directions to create branches, globes, and other organic forms.
