Please join us for the 2nd Friday Artwalk Opening reception for Tripp Jarvis: Sculptor and Resident Artist at Liberty Arts Sculpture Studio and Foundry and Amanda Sampson: Architectural and Lifestyle Photographer.
Tripp Jarvis Artist Statement: My sculpture is a continual search for stability, peace and wholeness. I feel that behind all the brokenness and suffering that the we experience lies an indestructible foundation of strength and wholeness. My sculpture making is none other than the heroic journey of the self through the spirited fire burning deep within the furnace of my soul’s abyss. There, in the core i work the burning flame, until the metal within sings out- in all the glory under the heavens- the great opus of my souls truth of being.

Her photography career began over a decade ago as an editorial and commercial photographer with a focus on lifestyle imagery and design.
