Abernathy Bland uses long-legged stick figures, birds, rabbits and pithy phrases to articulate her thoughts. The initial take-away may appear cartoonish, but with a second look, these simple illustrations speak volumes. Her distinctive style is recognizable from the logos for SPARC’s Live Art program, as well as the dining room at Foo Dog and a mural at Lombardy and Main streets. View more of her work in “This Is What We See,” a collection of paintings by Bland, Claire Hill and Margaret Cogar at The Hill Gallery and Studio, with an opening reception July 9 from 5 to 8 p.m. 921-1143 or hillgallery.net.
