September & October First Friday Artist: Reba Martin

Alter Ego is happy to showcase the work of Reba Martin. She is a self taught visual artist. She is based out of North Carolina. Her pieces and mediums of choice vary, but she works heavily in acrylic.


Reba says of her art " [This collection] is a journey through the past three years. It's a combination of pieces I've done in different mediums: acrylic, watercolor, and photography. My symmetrical photography is created by finding nice linework in the branches, and multiplying them to create a pattern. I replicate Earth's beautiful creatures in paint. The two styles are very different, but come together through nature. "


Join us from 6pm-9pm the First Friday of every month to view the artwork and chat with the artist. Her work will be featured and available for purchase until the end of October.
