Small: Works by Laura Sharp Wilson

Join us for a Gallery Stroll artist reception on June 15 from 6-9 pm. In Laura Sharp Wilson’s paintings the fabric of people's lives is dissected and broken down into threads, strands, rope, shapes, patterns, and chains, which are allowed to bind, constrict, envelop, unravel, create webs, outline, cover up, and reconcile. Can a structured or chaotic weaving portray a society? Can transparency and opacity suggest ignoring others? Can bound empty spaces represent a deep insecurity? Wilson conveys a narrative illustrating internal feelings of turmoil and confusion which beg to be sorted out and clarified.


ACME Session | The Many Faces of Us

In fall 2019, Meadowlark Elementary students will start the school year in a brand new building. At this ACME Session, attendees will contribute to a larger artwork that will be installed in the new building. Meadowlark Arts Committee envisions a quilt to line the halls—with each square representing Meadowlark’s collective hopes and dreams. This session will engage Meadowlark families and the community at large in the creative process, providing the space and time for them to speak with educators and decision makers about their hopes and wishes for the students. Everyone is invited. UMFA’s ACME program is partnering with Meadowlark Elementary to make this community collaboration possible.
