Death and the Maiden and Femke Hiemstra

Well everyone, this is it. After 18 incredible years we are closing our doors. Roq La Rue has been the most amazing experience of my life, but I’m choosing to start a whole new path in wildlife conservation.

However! We are going out on an amazing note, with the Death and The Maiden 2 Group show and a small solo by long time exhibiting artist Femke Hiemstra.
We hope you will join us on a special opening night SATURDAY, August 6th 6-9pm
(or if you want an email show preview contact us!)
and join us in raising a glass at the after party at The Pharmacy located in Pioneer Square. ~ Kirsten

We welcome back long time represented Dutch artist Femke Hiemstra for a small solo show of her magical small scale works. Incredibly meticulous, the tiny jewel box like paintings contain intricate detail as well as an eye for humor and visual puns.
