    Art and Writing with Susan Brown and Patrice Pinette

    Art and Writing with Susan Brown and Patrice Pinette

    The following workshops are inspired by the art of Susan Prince Thompson (featured in our current exhibit, "Boundless"). Susan’s delight in things visual, tactile and verbal weaves throughout her works and words.

    Explore more than one art form, and find your creative process inspired and enlivened in new ways. Writing is nourished by visual images, and language can be a great source for visual artwork. Such cross-pollination also allows for transformation as both writers and artists discover new material and see their own work re-imagined in different forms. This is a wonderful way for participants (who have lots or little experience writing and/or making art) to jump in and experience for themselves the unique strengths of each form. These Works and Words workshops are about enjoying the discovery!

    Writing activities will offer opportunities for collaborative wordplay as well as for deepening individual work. Two and three-dimensional art will incorporate many of the materials Susan Thompson used. Art and writing will honor multi-cultural sources and feature surprising new connections.

    I think there is great mystery and power in the life of objects. ~ Susan Prince Thompson

    Mysterious Life of Objects III: Transforming found objects and composing found poems, we will reanimate that which outlived its prior purpose giving old texts and textiles another lease on life!

    In this improvisational storytelling theater event, we will explore what's in the way of connecting across societal differences (of age, gender, ability, class, race, religion, etc.)...and the rewards of when we succeed.

    During the 75 minute performance, 6-12 audience members take the risk to tell of important moments from their lives. Four actors and a musician instantly capture the essence of each story through drama, movement, and song.

    A True Story Theater performance is more than just entertainment. Audience members laugh, cry, get insights about their life, and feel an expanded sense of community. You can share a moment from your life and see it performed, or just come to watch.

    Admission: $15 in advance (call (603) 924-4555. $20 at door. $25 Supporter. $10 for students and the under-employed. To learn more about the troupe, visit truestorytheater.com.
