Letters To Wild Women

 

Program Description: We are pleased to announce the opening reception of “Letters to Wild Women”, an art exhibition in the library’s community room featuring the work of Hudson-based artist Catalina Viejo Lopez de Roda. The exhibition consists of a series of collages in which Viejo interprets the texts of female authors and poets into a visual language of abstract shapes and color. Each of the collages is a letter composed in color, form and pattern. The recipient of a letter might be real or conceptual; a person, a feeling, a current event. Viejo has chosen texts that evoke a strong personal and emotional response and include themes involving human relationships, human rights, female identity and intimacy. What palette arises when visually interpreting Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie’s “We Should All Be Feminists”? What does Sylvia Plath’s story “The Bell Jar” look like when translated into color?

Date/Time:  Saturday, April 6, 3-5pm. The exhibition will be on view through May 31, 2019.
