Rivers, Wings and Sky | Nancy Losacker & Norma Wilson
Inez & Milton Shaver Gallery
03.13.15 - 05.02.15
Artists' Reception: Friday. March 13 | 5 - 7pm
The Rapid City Arts Council is pleased to announce a collaborative exhibit where art and literature converge. This exhibit, entitled Rivers, Wings & Sky, features 10 mosaic and poetry pairings.
Rivers, Wings & Sky is a collaborative exhibit of mosaics and poetry influenced by landscape and wildlife around the Missouri River. The exhibit’s mosaics and poems dovetail in surprising ways, allowing the viewer and reader to think and respond more deeply to human experiences with nature. For example, Sharing the Lead, Losacker’s mosaic featuring two flocks of geese flying in v formations in a crystal-blue sky of late fall, holds within it the delicate beauty that can only last if human beings are willing to reject our destructive behavior.
