Renee Couture and Carolyn Hopkins: Soft Ambition

July 10 - August 15

Free
The text, "Soft Ambition / Renee Couture & Carolyn Hopkins / Opening: July 10 6-9pm / july 10 - Aug 15, 2021" is separated by an image of someone riding a horse, carrying a billowing white flag—a vast landscape of grass, hills, and a hazy mountain at sunset stretch into the distance.

Soft Ambition features new work by Renee Couture & Carolyn Hopkins. Both artists explore notions of resistance and acceptance as experienced through recent life changes.

Since moving to Klickitat County WA, Hopkins has become acutely aware of her concurrently vulnerable and dependent relationships to the landscape around her, as well as the community she now resides in. Hopkins’ new works operate as gestures of simultaneous surrender and defiance.

Couture’s work investigates her fragile relationship with motherhood. Using images and ephemera, she captures the dichotomies within parenthood, including taboo emotions tempered by hope.
