For the month of March 2020, Make.Shift Gallery in Downtown Bellingham presents “And in That Moment: Works by Aunna Moriarty.” The gallery will showcase Moriarty’s photography in a solo show exhibit that defines the artistic process. Moriarty resides in Seattle, Washington and is a photographer and model. Her work has a sharp focus on fashion and performance used as a means to investigate the human focus.
The artist emphasizes that this specific project, “And in that moment,” is a way to materialize her distorted experiences of people, places, colors, and time. This project is not meant to be a literal translation of dreamland as there are often missing pieces and interruptions throughout the night but rather, it seizes the lingering emotions and disturbances released from these ephemeral moments.
Armed with a deep curiosity of textiles, color theory, lighting, and a love affair with vintage wear, she is able to capture the true beauty of the feminine archetype. Moriarty is a graduate of the BFA program at Seattle University in photography and has said that she is passionate about education in the arts.
The opening will be on Friday, March 6, from 6-10 p.m. For more information about the Art Walk or Make.Shift please visit our website at makeshiftproject.com or contact Gallery Director, Gabrielle Olson, at email@example.com.
