Exhibit Details

Wide-Eyed Garden is an exhibit of works by Leila Cartier. Cartier is an Abingdon native who studied art and art history at Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia and Temple University in Rome, Italy. She is currently pursuing her Masters of Fine Arts at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Cartier’s large vibrant paintings are glimpses into a surreal world dominated by combinations of botanical, figural, and arthropod forms. The exhibition itself is designed to catapult visitors into a unique dreamlike environment equivalent to a rock opera experience.
