Carrington Arts opens its fifth art show of 2016 with Survival Kit, featuring the recent work of Kaeleen Wescoat-O’Neill. Kaeleen graduated with a BFA in 2010 from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. She lives and works in Los Angeles, CA as Senior Designer at Drawing From Memory. She has an interdisciplinary artistic practice that borrows from therapy, wellness, and self-­help literature. Her work has a sense of humor and maintains a hopeful point of view.

“This recent work is about surviving a breakup and starting over again; redefining yourself and trying new things; calling upon friends and relying on comfort; nightmares of new lovers crossing paths with old lovers; seeking fun and eliminating fear (and) figuring out how to be,” Wescoat-O’Neill said.

As a special treat, NBC’s “The Voice” finalist, Emily Keener, of Wakeman, will be performing. Talented singer, songwriter and musician, Keener will be performing at 7:30 pm. at the venue located at 231 West Water St., Sandusky.

The show is more conceptual in nature and features a series of oil stick paintings on canvas with large bold copy, like the image, “I do not have a back-up plan," as well as functional art called “body pillows," and oversized handmade dreamcatchers.

Kaeleen will be attending the opening which takes place Friday, Aug. 12 from 6 to 9 p.m. The exhibit will run through Sept. 17.

Both the opening event and exhibition are free to the public. Additional information about the show, gallery hours and daily information can be found at
