Re-Connection

Erin Leichty

April 5 – April 30, 2017

Preview reception: April 5, 5-8pm
First Thursday Reception: April 6, 5:00­-8pm
Artist Talk: April 23, 11am

In her new work, Leichty transfers evocative photographs of everyday people onto plaster, exploring narratives of loss and discovery. Through her additive and subtractive processes, Leichty buries and uncovers stories about our universal need for human connection – her layers of plaster, paint and cold wax invite viewers to consider the complexities of these longings. Leichty will be hosting several events throughout the month inviting storytellers, poets, writers and healers to share their own tales and to lead workshops focused on helping participants re-connect with themselves, family, community and country.
