Stranger Factory is happy to present Gretchen Lewis in her first feature show, LOST & FOUND.
This show is a collection of new paintings on found vintage objects and ephemera. Exploring themes related to Lewis’ love of collecting objects with history, and the past lives she imagines those items to have had, she is drawn to items that are well-loved and possibly inhabited by friendly ghosts or spirits. Her signature style references endearing nostalgia, most specifically turn-of-the-century children’s book illustration, fairy tales, and folklore.
*ALL STRANGER FACTORY EXHIBITIONS ARE FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
