Artist Christine Alfery has been invited to do a collaborative work /book of art and poetry with poet Ken Lauter. This book is sponsored by the Cole Art Center in Nocogdoches, Texas. Ken Lauter chose the works to write his poetry to from the work that was exhibited in the 2018 Texas National Competition. Christine’s work “Flying Circus” was juried into the Texas National Competition by judge Jed Perl. It was one of 65 artworks for the exhibition out of nearly 1,000 entries.
This was a new way of mark making for Christine back in the beginning of the year. Since then she has done about 8 works in this series – she is calling this series “At The Circus.”
One of Christine’s new circus works “Ringmasters Coat” will also be on display at an annual regional exhibition in Manitowish Waters, WI sponsored by the Manito Art League. The exhibition is on July 12-15th, 2018. For more information go the the leagues website: https://manitoartleague.org.
