From the Studio: New Moon Gallery's "Transmutation"

Artists Kim Long and Susan Webber talk about their transformative new exhibit

Visual artists Susan Webber and Kim Long joined E.J. Iannelli in the KPBX studio to talk about "Transmutation," their new joint show at New Moon Art Gallery.

The artists discussed the fantastical, mythological, whimsical, escapist and occasionally grotesque imagery of some of the work that will be on display.

Long, for example, will be showing work like "Hightower Tiger," which depicts a tiger relaxing with a drink in a lounge environment. Webber's work includes an untitled arrangement of nine fabric panels that have been separated and mixed like a sliding tile puzzle, fragmenting the female figure they depict.

"Transmutation" opens tomorrow (Friday, Nov. 4, 2022) at the New Moon Art Gallery on East Sprague as part of a First Friday event. It will run until Saturday, Nov. 26.
