I’m excited to announce a three woman show, Art of Personal Story will showcase three different approaches to combing art and story to explore our personal narratives. It will be held September and October 2014 at the gallery in the library in Hillsboro Oregon.
Rebecca is a Portland Oregon based painter, illustrator and installation artist. She’ll be creating a follow up to her current piece shown above, Untangled. She created this piece for the stage of the Tedx-Concordia. You can hear her talk about the story in the piece in the short talk she did for the event.
Lisa Sonora Beam
Lisa is an author, artist, and creative business consultant based in Marin, California. Much of her work has been in visual journaling. For this show, she’ll take some of the ideas she usually develops in the intimacy of the sketchbook space to the wall.
Next step in my Memoir project
I’ve been working on a memoir project, so my part of the show will be the next phase of this story. You can see the work and read about the stories I’ve been doing in the artwork section of my site.
Developing the Show
The three of us have been in conversation about our different approaches to our personal stories. We will be sharing what we learn as we go about the art of personal storytelling as well as co-creating the show.
We are interested in connecting with other artists and writers who are doing cross-discipline work in personal narrative and memoir. Do you know anyone? Let us know in the comments.
