How and where do words and images intersect? What is the play between language, text and visual story telling? Artists Christine Martell, Lisa Sonora Beam and Rebecca Shapiro interpret the combination of personal narrative and visual image. Their goal is to create, define and present visual memoir inviting the attendee to participate in the artists’ stories through the lens of their own experiences.
The artists are reflecting on their own stories and exploring a variety of mediums to learn and understand how to create and show their personal stories. The venue selected for this exhibit is a library gallery. Each of the artists has a personal history with books, libraries, storytelling and writing that influence their work.
This show is a fascinating demonstration of the artistic process, how artists collaborate and the variety of work that is generated from a single idea.
The public is invited to an opening celebration with the artists on September 7 from 2 – 5 PM. The artists will give a talk about their work at 3:00 PM. They will also share examples of some of the journals, sketches, stories and other work that lead up to this exhibit.
