Please join us for the 2nd Friday ArtWalk opening reception for artist Mayson Stowers whose work centers on symbolic self-portraiture and self-reflection, presented in a way that audiences can relate to and find comfort in.

“Apperception: the mental process by which a person makes sense of an idea by assimilating it to the body of ideas he or she already possesses.” No word better describes the art of Raleigh native, Mayson Stowers. Trained in impressionistic oil painting, she pushes this and other media beyond traditional boundaries to create work centering on symbolic self-portraiture and self-reflection. She uses vibrant colors, intricate concepts, and fantastical symbolism blended with realistic representations to reveal her own struggles in hopes of encouraging others, explaining complex feelings and mental states through pictorial similes.
