Botanical Sensations: Mother & Daughter Gallery Talk
July 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Mother and daughter artists Carmen Oliver and Daniela Oliver de Portillo present a bilingual gallery talk at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 24 at Bihl Haus Arts. In this discussion presented in Spanish and English, the artists will discuss the work in the exhibition “Botanical Sensations” and how they used their studio practice to heal and distill the intense emotions brought on by the uncertainty and solitude of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Without realizing it or discussing it, both artists –whose work had always been markedly different—turned to the botanical and natural world as inspiration and a point of departure for creating two distinctly unique emotional manifestations. Their simultaneously and unintentional use of plants as subject matter is a reflection of family ties, intuitive connections, and the unbreakable bond between mothers and daughters.
