NORFOLK, Va. - The art show, Phantasmagoria, opened at Okay Spark in Norfolk on May 6. Atlanta-based artist, Kirsten Stingle, took months to construct each ceramic sculpture.  She states that her work is narrative and creates a landscape the viewer will want to crawl into.  Her goal is to show a character's inner depth on the outside of the figure.

Painter, Carrie Pearce, who studies art in Georgia, created the oil paintings used in the show. Pearce draws her inspiration from turn of the century photos.

Okay Spark is located on Boush Street and is open on Thursday and Friday from 3 -7pm and Saturday 10am-5pm.
