Gulfport Artist’s Talk
May 11 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFREE
Join us on May 23rd at 7:00pm, as Guflport’s own, Cora Marshall engages us in conversation about her narrative paintings and about her process as she creates this visual exploration of Family Memories, Ancestry, and History.
Through art, Cora says, “I can locate the places that form when ideas cross – ideas of self, home, and community. These new-sprung imaginative spaces are rich with possibilities and it is here that I can reveal, challenge, and expand my notions of the nature of life and my place in the world. I create work that seeks out the connections to and lessons from my African and Native American familial past. By mixing and melding symbols and meanings, I am able to conjure new multi-layers narratives.” Her mixture across the media of painting, mixed media, and photography she finds intersection and crossroads among belief, understanding and context.
