    Chattanooga artist Astri Snodgrass demonstrates differences between reality and images
    Give Chattanooga artist Astri Snodgrass a sheet of paper or a roll of masking tape and she'll turn it into something completely unrecognizable, poetic and gorgeous. In "A Pearl, a Fossil, or a Scar," her latest show at Channel to Channel, Snodgrass presents a series of "paper-rubbing drawings" - monochromatic, illusive works that possess both the solidity of stone and the softness of textile.
