|SUNDAY - JANUARY 27, 2019|
Great Barrington, 2-3:30 p.m.
Suzi Banks Baum’s "New Illuminations" artist residency in Gyumri, Armenia, brings book arts and personal narrative writing to Armenian women artists. By reconnecting Armenian women with their heritage of binding and illuminating books, New Illuminations empowers women through art in a community far outside the international gaze. The project is providing art supplies to eager artists and is building a community of makers in a city hobbled by trauma and poverty. In this short presentation and discussion at Elixir Cafe, Baum will share photographs, artwork, and stories, from her three residencies in Gyumri, Armenia, where she first traveled with John Stanmeyer in 2016. Admission is $35; reservation requested at 413-644-8999.
