Current Exhibit:

Connections: Words and Images
August 31-October 15

Words and images can set moods, tell stories, prompt memories, record history, and influence our ideas of society and culture.  Although the two arts are not codependent, they are closely entwined.  Images often tell stories and the written word often creates imagery.

Artists participating in this exhibit have been asked to provide literary references that relate to their piece of art in a meaningful way.  The words may help explain or support the specific piece of art on display or, perhaps, may have served as an influence on their artistic process in general.  We’ve specifically asked the artists not to address why they have chosen the literary reference but, instead, ask you, the viewer, to make the connections.

This is a community-curated art exhibit led by Diane Kunzler. The exhibit will feature fifteen Iowa  artists including: Andrew Clemence, Chad Elliott, Julie Elliott, John Evans, Richard Hanson, Diane Kunzler, Kelly Kunzler, Mike Kunzler, Kendall Lensch, Linda Lewis, Gail Pace, Maureen Seamonds, Hope Thier, Jill Weisenborn Wilhelm, and Richard Wright.

The exhibit will be accessible as part of regular paid tours of Salisbury House through October 15, 2017.
