opening reception

David K. Smith is enjoying Lake, River, Cities
Joanne Price, Snickleprice
United States, 2011

David K. Smith, from the University of West England, Bristol School of Art and Design, took a few snaps at the opening reception. (Joanne’s piece is a relief engraved print.)

Joanne says, she has thought a bit about place and how our lives are effected and affected by our environments and what we do to connect to those environments. In the piece I explore Minneapolis, MN and Bufffalo, NY in a composite image that explores the connections between my home in Minneapolis and my childhood home of Buffalo. The two cities had competing flour industries and both relied heavily on waterways to sustain and grow their cultures, industries and families. The two places diverge and converge in surprising ways that intersect my memories and experiences.

About sense of place in artist books

I am an artist. I find the ephemeral place in my art conjured up through practice. I sift through raw materials with my hopes and dreams, and ideas take form as if intended.
