Deneé’s work captures each moment with stark, bold saturation. This particular show was entirely created from observations at the State Farmer’s Market. Stunning in their simplicity with an added touch of urban grit, Deneé’s visions of produce are a feast for the eyes.
This show also features The ProduceBox, a local CSA with beautiful boxes of fresh fruit and vegetables for sale that night and welcoming new shop brands:
Slippin Southern, wood handcut southernisms
Mill & Bird, handcrafted leather bags
