Final Fridays at Essential Goods :: Larissa Wilson | Domestic Bliss
For our August Final Friday Artwalk, Essential Goods is excited to welcome artist Larissa Wilson. Please join us at her opening reception for her show, Domestic Bliss, on Friday, August 28th from 5 to 9 pm to meet the artist and check out her new work! We will also be featuring cuisine from Genovese as a preview for Restaurant week in mid-September.
Larissa Wilson is a native Kansan, a BFA graduate from Fort Hays State University, and a long time resident of Lawrence.
Her new series of assemblages seeks to elevate everyday household objects to sacred status. Salt and pepper shakers become religious icons. Tea strainer become alters. Button mandalas are made for meditation. They will bless the walls of Essential Goods until Wednesday, September 23rd, and after may find permanent places for devotion on the walls of your own home.
Larissa may also be recognized for her hard working role as pastry chef at The Roost, a popular local breakfast spot, or as “Butternutsquash”, the name she uses at local art fairs and LOLA events.
Larissa’s work will be up through September 23rd, 2015.
