"The reception for Risen is Saturday, January 24th, from 7-10 pm. The show continues through February 28th. Risen explores the themes in differing folklore: Ontiveros (Portland) depicts the deed-doer Golem from Jewish folklore with his signature-style robots in his paintings on wood and bottles while Crosby (Los Angeles) takes haunting tales from voodoo tales to create a little black magic in her lush work. The title Risen is derived from the rising souls in Golem's quests or the rising of evil, such as zombies or spells, in voodoo.
