Narratives: Small and Great – new prints by Liz Chalfin and Anne Beresford

IMAGE_NarrativesFinalNovember 16, 2010 – December 30, 2010

The show features two unique ways of telling stories. Liz Chalfin exhibits a series of etchings inspired by photographs of people in public places: fairs, parades, museums, restaurants, etc. These images capture mundane yet poignant, timeless moments in our culture. They feel historic and nostalgic, yet they are very contemporary. Anne Beresford’s monoprinted lithographs use the conventions of posters, broadsides and frontispieces to advertise for worldwide events and elements that we all commonly enjoy for free. Her work materializes at the intersection of image and language that are at once warnings of life’s passing us by, as they are unbridled celebrations of life’s very temporality.
