WHAT'S MINE IS MINE
New Works by Beverly Fitzpatrick
Oct 29 - Nov 4

OPENING RECEPTION
Join us for the opening reception of Makeshift’s current resident artist, Beverly Fitzpatrick. Beverly uses collage, sculpture, and installation in an attempt to wryly articulate current socio-political anxieties. Through her characteristic mode of intricately crafted and surrealistic image-building, she skewers this contemporary theme with her familiar arsenal of cannibalized magazines, advertisements, and other appropriated imagery.

Kalamazoo & Park

Makeshift is pleased to announce our next exhibition, Kalamazoo & Park, by artist-in-residence Colleen Woolpert.
