Tombaugh presents 'Between Heaven and Earth'


The Tombaugh Gallery will present an exhibition titled “Between Heaven and Earth” in February, featuring pencil and mixed media drawings by Karl Kohl and mixed media painted collages by Roy van der Aa.

Kohl’s drawings, per a news release, feature the faces of imaginary mythological figures inspired by indigenous and Buddhist traditions, based on what were once sketches for paintings.

Van der Aa’s collages, meanwhile, depict imaginary landscapes saturated in color with no figures.

Together, the gallery said the works seek “a more complete story…created through the eyes of the viewer that speaks to our common humanity.”

The exhibit opens with a reception 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 4. The show runs through Feb. 25.

The Tombaugh Gallery is located in the Unitarian Universalist Church at 2000 S. Solano Drive and is regularly open Thursday–Saturday, 10am–2pm, and Sunday 11:30am–2pm. For details, call the church office at 575-522-7281.
