Thursday February 21, 2019 / 12pm-3pm & Saturday February 23 / 5pm-8pm
Granary Arts Creative in Residence, Marnie Powers-Torrey, invites you to participate in a collaborative multimedia assemblage artwork, Makerspace and Time, in the CCA Christensen Cabin. Please bring your small, everyday objects to incorporate into the work. The art will become a visual narrative, emblematic of those who assembled it and the place from where they came. Objects with an interesting texture or silhouette with a flat surface can be documented with a monoprint. Other small pieces might be sewn or placed in pockets. Please only bring items that you are willing to commit to the project permanently. Most importantly, remember that any object bears a significance, particularly if you find it interesting. Roadside detritus, attic and basement leavings, remanence of daily doings, and otherwise random but somehow beautiful and engaging items will all become part of the vocabulary we use to tell a story of time and place.
The collaborative artwork will be on exhibition in the CCA Christensen Cabin alongside the work of Marnie Powers-Torrey through March 8, 2019. This project is co-sponsored by the Book Arts Program as part of the J. Willard Marriot Library at the University of Utah.
