Combining aspects of still life with portraiture, the new series by photographer Kristen Hatgi Sink is breathtaking. The artist used eyelash glue to artfully place flowers on her models' faces, which she then photographed in her kitchen under Vermeer-like lighting to create a surreal group of stunning pieces. Flower Face: A Still Life Portrait Series opens tonight at the Byers-Evans House with a reception from 5 to 9 p.m. Click through for a preview of the show, which will be up through February.
