“INNCE/EXPCE” Recycles and Re-imagines Visionary Poet/Artist William Blake

| 2 Comments | Events

Friday June 28, 2013, Thunder-Sky, Inc. Gallery presents “INNCE/EXPCE:   New William-Blake-Inspired Works by Emily Brandehoff and Robert McFate.”  The show celebrates William Blake, an idiosyncratic and visionary English poet, painter, and printmaker who passed away in 1827, largely unknown at the time. Blake is now considered a major figure in the history of poetry and visual arts.  Brandehoff and McFate both use Blake’s seminal work, “Songs of Innocence and Experience,” as starting points for bodies of wo…rk that merge words and pictures into dream-states.  As an embellishment to “INNCE/EXPCE,” we are also curating an intimate exhibit featuring the collaborative works by Opening Minds through Art, a program from Miami University that fosters art-making relationships among college students and elderly people, as well as works by kids from Suzanne Nall’s art class at Parker Woods Montessori a few blocks down from Thunder-Sky, Inc.  Top to bottom:  A painting by Emily Brandehoff, a poster for the show, several paintings by Maya, an 11-year-old girl in Suzanne’s class, and a painting by Robert McFate.
