Winterfell – Blanche Nettles Powers
January 07 - February 11, 2017

Press Release

Kim Foster Gallery is pleased to present “Winterfell” a group exhibition inspired by the cold blustery season, politics and the medieval fantasy Game of Thrones…

Blanche Nettles Powers’ inspiration is nature. The ethereal surface appears to be an even translucent layer, but in reality is comprised of hundreds of different sized strokes and markings.

This House of Winterfell is a struggle with the elements, dark forces, survival and enlightenment.
