Oct. 1, 2013 – Local artist Sami Lee Woolhiser's exhibition entitled, "Translations" at the Desotorow Gallery will be celebrated on Oct. 4 from 6-9 p.m. during the First Friday Art March. Woolhiser's work combines an array of materials that bring attention to moments that go unnoticed. Her honest work evokes dialogue between the art and the audience adding a new element to her list of materials. Woolhiser states, "It is with art that we may spend an hour, or a hundred hours within a moment."

Desotorow is also hosting a digital sculpture demonstration and workshop led by Woolhiser on Oct. 11 from 2-4 p.m. Woolhiser will be showing examples of her process and providing small "Pepakura" sculptures for attendees to assemble themselves and take home.

Woolhiser is the second artist to be featured as part of Desotorow's Exhibition Fellowship program. The Fellowship program is designed to give all artists and/or artistic groups, a chance to showcase their work in a professional, public gallery.
