Bold Boho is the third joint exhibition presented by Circa Gallery and Omforme Design.
Carter Averbeck, the owner and artistic visionary of local design shop Omforme, set his creative sights on the dreamy, free spirited bohemian look that's influencing the fashion and design worlds. The trend is also reflected in the bold palettes and layered textures of Circa artists' work executed in oil, metal, wood, glass, encaustic (hot wax), resin and cold wax.
Averbeck, who is known for his wildly creative repurposed furniture, is exhibiting wood tabletops saturated with eye-popping dyes and yarn-bombed metal-gridded chairs. His creations rest comfortably amongst the sumptuous surfaces and color drenched paintings and sculpture of Circa artists. Together, they offer a colorful bohemian feast for the eyes and soul.
