Dominique Hurley - Rise and Shine
Nature comes to life indoors as well as outdoors as the MUN Botanical Garden launches its 2013 season with "Rise & Shine" by Dominique Hurley, whose work is as much about the creative process as the final result. Her photography and mixed-media paintings are rich in vibrant colors, texture, movement, and spiritual symbolism, reflecting the dance of Spirit within Nature and the Self.
