Tiny House Full of Art
Poetry and Interpretive Dance - April 23| 3 - 5 pm
A combination of arts
Poets will pick their favorite piece of artwork in the gallery to write a poem about. As the poets read their work, a dancer will do an interpretive piece to the poem.
Someone once told us that if you don't have room for art you have too much furniture. We have transformed our Shipping Container Tiny Art Gallery into a living space filled with art. All the furniture in the 126 square foot room is on wheels so you can reconfigure the space as your needs change.
John White spent 14 years waiting, editing and revising his artwork. Finally, with printer and ink that has past his archival test, he is ready to show the fruit of his labor.
aaART was printed on canvas and also has been overpainted with acrylic paint to give the print a distinctive and unique quality. John has created this work so that it could fit against any wall color and lighting. With no correct orientation, John White hoped that it will encourage viewer to look at it often, at length, under changing lighting and in different environment.
Suzanne Smith Arney, author of HerArt/Herself: Profiles of 56 Women Who Make Art Matter
Jean B. Mills, fiber artist, educator, author
What better way to wrap up Women's History Month than with a double presentation by Jean, one of the women who makes art matter, and Suzanne, who wrote the book. Jean's appearance at Connect Gallery is a special treat since she now lives in Alaska. Other artists featured in the book are especially invited to meet and mix.
At the end of the presentation, all artists present will join in a Q&A session and book signing.
Wednesday March 30 | Noon
We look forward to seeing you!
