Artist Talk

Bonnie Meltzer

Friday, October 19, 4-5pm
Free to the community

Portland, Oregon artist Bonnie Meltzer will be talking about her environmental installation piece in the Fiber Arts show. Meltzer makes very mixed media figurative and abstract constructions which transform everyday objects, crocheted wire, digital photographs and painted wood into textured layers of social commentary, personal history and humor.  The talk will be given in the Columbia Center for the Arts Gallery.
