Karen Bondarchuk will present a Gallery Talk on her exhibition at The Brinton on May 2, at 7 PM. This event is sponsored by the Woodson Art Museum, The Brinton Museum and Dementia Friendly Wyoming, funded in part through a grant by Administration for Community Living.
Ergo Sum: A Crow a Day is an exhibit featuring 365 original works of art by artist Karen Bondarchuk. Ergo Sum: A Crow a Day is originated by the Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin, and focuses on the subject of dementia. Bondarchuk set out to mark the passing of time that her mother – diagnosed with dementia in 2010 – no longer could. Each hand-cut, hand-gessoed panel in this emotionally expressive exhibit represents Bondarchuk’s time remembered with her mother and explores communication and an artist’s relationship to the world. Karen Bondarchuk is a Professor of Art at Western Michigan University. She studied art at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, and The Ohio State University in Columbus. A reception to open Ergo Sum: A Crow a Day at The Brinton Museum takes place on Saturday, April 27, from 3 to 5 PM.
Ergo Sum: A Crow a Day continues in the S. K. Johnston, Jr. Family Gallery at The Brinton Museum through June 10.
