Artist’s Talk: Sunday, November 14, 2021 • 3:00 pm • Appleton Auditorium
Exhibition: November 7, 2021—January 2, 2022 • Quiet Gallery
Please join us at the library for an exhibition of local artist Lisa Freeman during the months of November and December in the Quiet Gallery. She will give a talk about her work on November 14 at 3:00 pm in the auditorium.
Freeman’s art has shifted from painting to a focus on assemblage art using found objects. Drawn to discarded objects and photographs, She is a collector, and Freeman’s art brings to light the “mystery of the forgotten.” By collecting objects, both the familiar and the unusual, and assembling them together, Freeman is asking us to look—to truly look—and, hopefully, to see. You can see examples of her work here: http://www.artbylisafreeman.
Freeman was born in Canada, grew up in the Midwest, and landed in Georgia as a teenager. The constant shifting left her feeling a bit like an outsider cloaked in invisibility. Armed with the powerful resource of observation, Freeman watched and witnessed the human spectacle, taking visual notes and collecting—always collecting—along the way. Lisa Freeman works from her home studio in Athens,Georgia.
The exhibition and Artist’s Talk are free and open to the public. Masks are required in the library. For further information, visit www.athenslibrary.org/
