Six Stories, a show curated by artist and educator Bronwyn Minton, is on exhibition at the Art Association February 17-March 30, 2012. An opening reception takes place at the Art Association’s Glenwood Lobby Gallery on February 17, 5:30 – 7:30 pm. Works in the show are inspired by favorite books read in childhood. Invited artists include Alissa Davies, Calla Grimes, Jenny Dowd, Rachel Kunkle Hartz and Suzanne Morlock.
“I kept coming back to Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney, a wonderful book about a young girl who is told by her father that the one thing she must do in life is make the world more beautiful,” says Davies. “Combining the book’s essence with another favorite, Charlotte’s Web, was my inspiration. I hope to invoke beauty with my pod-piece, as well as a “web” that snakes up the gallery’s wall.”
