Artist Talks at MMPA

My work has always had an organic, visceral aspect which I consider to be part of my concern with life issues, like vulnerability, passion and the uncanny. – Sara Stites Combining the satire of Victorian burlesque with the bawdiness of American burlesque, the treatment of this imagery on the hankies brings these girlies into the home where they are the queens of their own realms. – Deb Whitney

We are proud to announce our current exhibition as it kicks off our “gallery season”. The photographic work in this exhibition focuses on how an artist’s surroundings can affect and inspire the work. The images leap ahead, embracing the avant-garde, while nodding backwards at the art historical themes of still life, interiors, landscape and studio work. It reminds us that our thoughts about homely things will always be important to communicate too. As ever there will be framed photographs and prints in the exhibit. The works are beautiful, explore contemporary theory, new technologies, media and they shouldn’t be missed. – Director, Denise Froehlich
