Simile & Metaphor: Red Necklace

Barbara Owen is a multidisciplinary artist whose current work links her studio practice with everyday life. She combines abstraction and personal ephemera to interrogate the relationships that break and form between them. Mixing mediums, they function together as a kind of collective memory; one that transgresses boundaries in an analysis of the tensions between one and the other, here and there, this and that.

Simile & Metaphor: Red Necklace, a solo show by artist Barbara Owen, was installed in the Weil Gallery at Wheaton College in Norton, MA from August 28-November 3, 2018.
Owen delivered the Hass Visiting Artist lecture in the Ellison Auditorium on September 6, 2018.
