Bonnie Halsey-Dutton's paintings invite reflection upon past and present globalization of world cultures. Her representations of trade beads symbolize human migration and cultural currency. Beads originating in ancient cultures such as Egypt, China and Italy have circled the globe countless times. These artifacts continue to be highly treasured. As with humankind, strings of beads have been grouped, categorized, unstrung, restrung and remixed. Her exhibit titled "Cultures Intertwined" is free and open to the public Monday through Friday.
