Blueming Onion
An Exhibition by Alexa Joan Wajed

on view January 21 – February 26, 2022/ Studio Gallery

Blueming Onion is an inquisitive and free flowing exploration of where Alexa’s culinary and visual arts practices converge. Through pattern, line, color and text, her work represents discovery and self-actualization by investigating complex layers of our being. The closing reception will take place on February 26, 2022 from 10am – 2pm. 

The Book Arts Studio Residency invites emerging artists to experiment with various printmaking processes in our community studio for a two month period, culminating in an exhibition of their artworks.  Find out more about the residency program.
