Opening Reception: March 14, 6:00 – 8:00 PM, in partnership with The Enzian

 

Moving Pictures is a collection of watercolor studies and digital images captured while artist Joyce Ely-Walker traveled across the country by train. “The landscape images flashing past me – sometimes a blur of trees, sky and earth, then clarity of buildings or a lone water tower – began to create a narrative.” The artist went on to further investigate moving imagery in her studio, creating “narrative moments,” where mind and memory converged.
