A Desert of Magnificence

When: Thu., Oct. 22 2015

Corrie Slawson’s A Desert of Magnificence is inspired by her daily commute through Northeast Ohio’s diverse urban and suburban landscapes. These travels are dictated by her various roles as a mother and full-time artist, as well as her day job. In addition to work inspired by Cleveland, the exhibition features work inspired by recent travels to Tijuana, Mexico and Dresden, Germany. Additionally, Slawson is Zygote Press’ Grants Director and Archivist. Slawson’s history with Zygote Press is apparent through the wide variety of processes and techniques she utilizes. She incorporates printmaking, drawing, painting, spray-painting, metal leaf and photo-based images to create dynamic, vibrant compositions that draw the viewer in. Today at 6:30 p.m., you can learn more about her exciting new work during a special artist talk with curator Indra Lācis. Indra Lācis is a research assistant in the department of Modern European Art at the Cleveland Museum of Art, and she earned her PhD in art history from Case Western Reserve University in 2014. Free.
