Coalesce: Collaborative Work by Joseph and Misty Bennett Exhibit Scheduled at Central Library November 3-December 30, 2016
What: Coalesce: Collaborative Work by Joseph and Misty Bennett exhibit
When: November 3-December 30, 2016, during library hours
Where: Central Library, Fourth Floor Gallery
"These collaborative works started out as an experimental conversation between two artists.”
These are the reflective words of artists Joseph and Misty Bennett. From November 1 through December 30, 2016, the Birmingham Public Library will showcase the work of both artists in the Central Library’s Fourth Floor Gallery. A process was developed wherein one artist would begin a drawing, then hand it over to the other, and they would continue to pass it back and forth until both felt there was nothing more to add. It was a reactionary and spontaneous way of working, which led to a sense of discovery and a deeper understanding of self for each artist.
Come meet the artists at the opening reception from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 12, at the Central Library’s Fourth Floor Gallery. Both artists are faculty in the University of Montevallo Art Department.
