robert wittenberg election 2014 ad “Visceral” is an art exhibition that incorporates anatomical elements to delve into the subtler nuances of human existence. Lindsey Harnish explores themes of secrecy and vulnerability, death and birth and solitude and companionship with exposed bones and surreal juxtapositions of organs Ghostly figures with visible guts linger in dilapidated ruins. Woodland backdrops of tangled branches and twining vines echo the branching patterns of arteries and veins.

“I’m interested in how these patterns repeat and connect us from our insides to the exterior world,” Harnish comments. “We are fragments of the whole.”

Many of the works are encaustic paintings, an ancient painting technique which combines beeswax, resin and pigment to achieve an intriguing layered luminescence. The beeswax is melted, then painted on the panel, then fused using aspiritual life ferndale blowtorch or a heat gun. The surface is further manipulated with razor blades and other sharp implements.

Lindsey Harnish’s art is an eclectic blend of styles, with nods to Art Nouveau and Lowbrow as well as the whimsical pages of children’s picture books. She has been exhibited throughout metro Detroit, including the Damned Exhibition, District VII Gallery, Russell St Industrial Center and the Scarab Club Emerging Artists Series. She helps foster art exhibitions and programming at the Ferndale Public Library, where she is on thesidebar016grow Art and Exhibitions Committee. She lives and works in Ferndale, MI.

The thoughtful menu is composed of small plates, a few well-chosen entrees as well as a butterscotch pudding that has already been called ‘iconic’. Whenever possible, the menu is sourced from local purveyors.
