Elevation Worship

After a trip to the Museum of Modern Art and the American Folk Art Museum in New York City, local artist Carrie Marill found herself asking why the MoMA's Op Art pieces, which makes use of optical illusions, were valued as high art and the intricate quilts she saw at the Folk Museum were valued as low art.

This month, the artist showcases her latest works -- and explorations of her original question -- on canvas. Marill's “Hi n Lo” features her paintings influenced by the patterns in works by classic American quilters and paired with her own written, thread-like text.

Thu., Jan. 5, 7-9 p.m.; Saturdays, noon; Tuesdays-Fridays, 10 a.m. Starts: Jan. 5. Continues through Jan. 28, 2012
