Artist Talk: Kathleen Vance
Kathleen Vance will discuss her work, including her site-specific installation that recreates a segment of the Brandywine River on the core wall of the Museum’s atrium. Vance will share insights about projects that connect people to aspects of nature that are overlooked or underappreciated. Vance creates miniature landscapes inside vintage suitcases and trunks. The bucolic scenes harken to a place out of time and a romanticism of nature, with lush foliage and flowing streams. These relaxing scenarios consider personal land ownership, water rights and the need for stewardship and preservation of our green areas and water sources. These works bring nature back into everyday life and the hurried pace of each person's travels can be slowed to a moment of respite for contemplation and reflection.
The Museum will open at 5:30 p.m. with the program at 6 p.m. and a reception to follow.
