5.23 - "Splintered"
At the Washburn Cultural Center from 5 - 7 p.m. Come check out Elisabeth Hume's Senior Art Exhibition, "Splintered," the reception is on Thursday and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided at the Washburn Cultural Center. Elisabeth describes her work, "As an artist, I am inspired by moments within memories and dreams; they become the reality that is my art. Over the past four years, I have discovered new and old techniques in photography and printmaking. This discovery has allowed me to work specifically in historical photography mediums such as tintypes, Vandyke brown prints, intaglio, and photo intaglio. These processes have an inherent spirituality and feeling of otherworldliness; this creates a backdrop to all of my work." www.elisabethhume.com
