Bestiary and Bohemian Earth, Zoe Litaker and Jameela F. Dallis
The Makery @ Mercury Studio is pleased to host two artists this September 16th from 6-8pm for their one night only exhibition!
"My work is grounded in a love of fantastical stories and the belief that the imagined places in our minds are as real as the tangible world. As Herman Mellville put it, “It is not down on any map; true places never are.” My collages cast their own shadows, they are my imagined landscapes, my own “true places,” and I invite you visit them."
Bohemian Earth is the shop of Jameela F. Dallis where she presents her jewelry in one-of-a-kind, limited edition pieces that tell a narrative through adornment. Each piece is inspired by great personalities like Frida Kahlo and Zora Neale Hurston and states of mind like "desire." Jameela also uses her talents and insights in many ways. She teaches literature and composition at an area university, has been painting and illustrating since childhood and is also a Tarot reader with 15 years experience, reading weekly at Arcana in Durham.
