The Art Base in Basalt recently unveiled its newest exhibition, the first solo show for local artist Molly Peacock. The show is titled “Morphous,” featuring clay sculpture and charcoal drawings that represent the balance between humans and nature, reflecting Peacock’s background with a BS in conservation biology and an MFA in ceramics. Locals filled the gallery, perusing the works during the opening on Friday, April 12.
Executive Director of the Art Base Genna Moe paused guests to introduce Peacock and ask about her background and inspiration for her work. But the discussion is just a precursor to the Artist Talk that the Art Base will be hosting for members with Peacock on Thursday, April 18, at the Charles J. Wyly Gallery. “Morphous” will be on display until May 3, but every month the Art Base hosts a new show highlighting local artists.
