“Works on Paper” is a collection of artwork inspired by a beautiful essay titled, “Between Solitude and Loneliness.” Balink created these pieces, as well as trees, open spaces, and rivers. However, these experiences left a lingering, permanent impression with thoughts of solitude. These can often be a comfortable feeling, all being portrayed in her artwork.
Opening night is September 21 and runs through November 7. The event is free and is from 6 to 8 PM. The Eclectic Eye showroom is located on 242 S. Cooper Street in Midtown, Memphis.
