Nina Covington's Rise explores the artist's journey through healing and the triumph of will and indomitable spirit. Using her iconic long exposure photography as the base for evocative mixed media pieces combined with poetry, Covington creates an environment for conversations on the trials of life. Rise is free to view and open to the public at abrasiveMedia during the Arts & Music at Wedgewood Houston art crawl on September 2, 2017 from 6-9 pm. There will be a closing reception with an artist talk on September 30, 2017 from 4-6 pm. Nina will have a book of the collected artwork and poems in the show, also titled Rise, available for purchase. The collection contains nudity.
