Paintings by Marcie Oakes will be on display at Deer Run Art & Artifacts starting Saturday, July 21.

“With explosions melting and spilling throughout these abstract environments,” Oakes said in an artists statement, “I’m portraying an ever-changing world that projects beauty as a direct result of spontaneous destruction.”

The Chicago-based painter’s works have been widely exhibited in the Midwest, and on both the East and West coasts.

The “Slow Chaos” show, curated by Nick Wilkinson, continues through Monday, Sept. 3.

Deer Run is at 2024 Main St., inside The Garden Shed. It’s open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily (until 6 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays).
