Visual Narratives, Layer by Layer with Diana Bloomfield
October 3, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
“As a native North Carolinian, I come from a long line of storytellers. I can still see those stories in my mind’s eye. And so, for almost 40 years, I have told my own stories visually– always linking that ever-shifting past to the present. In this talk, I’ll explore why I choose antique printing techniques and hand-built creations to weave my own contemporary narratives.” –Diana Bloomfield
