Séance by Carla Rae Johnson
SÉANCE CARLA RAE JOHNSON
TUESDAY, JANUARY 16
through SATURDAY, MARCH 10
The Séance series of drawings and sculptural tableaus stages an imaginary meeting between creative individuals that have never met: Emily Dickinson with Marcel Duchamp, Hildegard of Bingen with Herman Melville, Bessie Smith with Ludwig van Beethoven, Audre Lorde with Abraham Lincoln, and Anne Frank with Albert Schweitzer. Each unexpected pair confronts each other, and navigates the social and ideological barriers that divide them.
The Fine Arts Gallery is located on the third floor of the Hankin Academic Arts Building, across from the theatre. It is open Monday through Saturday 10:00 am – 3:00 pm, and Thursday evenings 4:00 – 6:00 pm. Exhibitions and receptions are free and open to the public.
