Arts Express: Quick and True Renderings
The traveling exhibit “Arts Express: Quick and True Renderings” opens at St. Luke’s hospital September 1, with a public reception Tuesday, September 6 from 3:30 to 5 p.m.
The exhibit features poetry, drawing and video collage by cancer survivors, their caregivers and friends. Arts Express will be on display September 1 through 30 in the Main Lobby of St. Luke’s. The touring exhibit is returning from the MacRostie Art Center in Grand Rapids, MN, where it was part of their Art & Wellness Weekend.
“Music and art are so healing to me,” writes Melody Daley in her artist bio for the exhibit. “Art speaks to my soul and allows my soul to speak.” The sketches, doodles and drafts on display were made during arts workshops offered by the Duluth nonprofit Project Lulu. Poet Sheila Packa, painter Elizabeth Kuth, dancer Lisa McKhann and digital artist Joellyn Rock led exercises in quick, bold art-making.
