tonight, I am involved in a very interesting project.
Painter Karen Bailey painted 6 storytellers and 1 guide dog.
She is exhibiting all paintings and the storytellers will take turns telling stories in front of the pictures.
I will be on hand between 7 and 9 PM tonight.
The project is called “Speaking and Still,” am innovative co-presentation by artist Karen Bailey and the Ottawa Storytellers(see http://www.karenbailey.ca/ and http://www.ottawastorytellers.ca/), running from 6:30 p.m Saturday to 2:00 a.m Sunday morning.
Karen was fascinating for me to work with as we talked a lot about the similarities between our art forms and she described all visual things in words I could understand.
I thank her for that.
