Every month, Third Degree welcomes a new local artist to showcase their 2D artwork in our East Gallery as a part of Third Fridays. This month, we are showcasing four big, beautiful works of contemporary art by emerging artist Eugenia Alexander.
Eugenia’s style is what she calls “Geometric Story Telling” — she creates and interprets stories through geometric patterns and shapes made up from her wild and curious imagination, inspiration, or real life situations. Her inspiration is rooted in traditional African and Native American symbol and pattern design that is rapidly fading from the public eye. Being African American and finding inspiration in Native American culture, Eugenia feels it is majorly important for viewers to recognize this and to be inspired by her artwork, tapping into their imagination and sometimes interpreting their own stories. “My work serves a purpose to tell a story and to create a positive energy to its viewer and owner,” she says, “and to also think in-depth about the story being told through my work.”
Eugenia’s work is on display through Wednesday, November 16. Come see it for yourself! We’re open 10:00a to 5:00p, Monday-Saturday.
