"Midsummer Dream" is up at Playhouse on the Square. The show is a mix of girlhood block prints, mixed media on paper using text from A Midsummer Night's Dream (the opera that will be playing through the run of the exhibition), and paintings and prints from Greece and Turkey. The imagery in the text pieces overlaps with the Greek prints, since the play is set in Athens. I had fun playing with moon motifs, the famous caryatids, and other images that crossed over easily from the play to my landscapes.
The opening reception is Friday, January 28th from 5-7 pm in the lobby of Playhouse on the Square at the corner of Union and Cooper in Midtown Memphis.
