Adrift : Press
“Adrift,” by Hillary Dohoney at Fort Works Art
Exhibition dates: September 13-October 28
Reception: September 15, 6 pm
Stuck in the middle of North Texas, we couldn’t be more landlocked if we tried. Which is why the immersive exhibition “Adrift,” opening this week at Fort Works Art, is a welcome bubble of tranquility in an arid prairie.
The local first solo exhibition of North Texas artist Hillary Dohoney, the show mixes lifelike seascapes with an immersive 12-foot installation that offers a panoramic view of the calming waters. Inspired by the real-life tales of political refugees, Dohoney has layered their most cherished possessions into her calming canvases, giving the work a depth deeper than the seemingly deep blue sea.
To elevate “Adrift,” musician Sam Lao will perform on the roof of the gallery on opening night.
