‘Transcendence’ to open at No. 5 Butchie Alley 

A new exhibition of paintings and ceramic tile, Transcendence, by Mary Gamble Barrett opens at No. 5 Butchie Alley, 1175 S. 13th Street on September 9 and runs through November 4. An opening reception will be held on Sept. 9 from 6-9 p.m. 

The creation of these works was both meditative and cathartic for Barrett after the passing of her husband and best friend, Dominick Barrett, in 2021. 

During preparation for this exhibition, she rediscovered her love of dualities: order/chaos, inside/outside, physical/metaphysical(spiritual) combining the chaotic swirls of color wash with the structure of symbolic geometry.
