The writing process involves figuring out the words, characters, and incidents needed to tell a story. It involves making connections between parts. Once the story is captured, is the ending final? In this exhibition the answer is no, never; stories evolve as they gain new storytellers. In this collaboration each artist expands on an aspect of a written story from the collection Slide that resonates with him or her. The artwork transforms images, feelings, and ideas expressed with written words into physical forms. With these new interpretations, the connections between individual worlds, both internal and external, are revealed. The stories expand and deepen as different artists express what is most true for them.
