The landscape, our personal experience, and our society is subject to intense compartmentalization and segmentation over time, at least in the culture in which we find ourselves. This show represents a variety of explorations of that reality. From explorations of segmented landscapes to internal compartmentalization, these visual explorations reveal something about who we are. Making these works outside on the porch in the stillness of a COVID spring, or inside on the dining room table in the dead of winter, entails an unfolding and increased awareness of just how tangled we and our landscape have become. This show is an expression of that unfolding.
This project began as a collision of surrealist creativity. The mother is a professional artist with an MFA degree and an in-depth knowledge and love for surrealism in all its forms. She has given lectures and classes on surrealism and created a lot of it herself! One day she discovered her own daughter’s exquisite, ethereal poetry! As she read it, her jaw dropped at the eerie phrases, nearly making sense and then. . . not. The mother was intrigued and, being an artist, imagery began popping and flowing into her head. She wondered what these poems would look like! The daughter wondered too and thus began the Mother-Daughter Project.

VIRTUAL CLASS For those who have already participated in Susan Jane Gilman’s introductory workshop, “Telling Your Own Story” Memoir Writing Workshop that was held online by The Center in October 2020. Participants will continue to develop their skills and writing from Part I. This month-long follow-up course will pick up where Part I left off, and is customized to focus on participants creative needs and interests. It will include sessions on “showing not telling,” how to master the art of dialogue, using different types of language, and editing. There will be exercises, spirited discussions, light reading assignments, and workshops. The instructor hopes that it will reinvigorate and inspire everyone after the holidays.
