BONUS COVERAGE: Kyle Ragsdale exhibit to be highlight of Harrison Center First Friday

Friday, Nov. 6, will bring the opening night of Zephyr, a new collection of paintings, drawings and ceramics by resident artist Kyle Ragsdale. Zephyr means “a soft wind,” and the figures throughout the paintings are enveloped in swirling and flowing fabric. The show will blend inspiration from Baroque and Rococo periods with more modern techniques such as splatters, drips and visible brush strokes.
