'Outlier', Art Exhibition by Denise Bledsoe

Saturday, November 11, 2023 from 6 PM to 10 PM
Distinction Gallery
All Ages

Of all artists, mixed media creators must work with the most variation. What might be a drawback for some is the key strength of Denise Bledsoe's new exhibit, "Outliers".

Bledsoe is known for using lots of materials to create one-of-a-kind figures. From sewing tiny clothes to hand-sculpting teeth, she uses everything from textiles to moss, lace and ceramics to guide her Art Dolls into being.

"Outlier" is in every way an extension of her unconventional approach. Being highly anthropomorphic, it’s easy to relate to her Art Dolls. There is no denying their unsettling if amusing personalities. Through these new works, Bledsoe cleverly challenges us to consider the saliency within the uncanny. Collectors delight in her sheer originality, seeking figures with whose expressiveness they connect.

"Outliers" opens November 11, 6-10 p.m. at Distinction Gallery in Downtown Escondido. There will be an opening reception with the artist, live music and drinks available for purchase by Last Spot.
