An event every day that begins at 11:00am, repeating until July 31, 2023
Gallery North announces the opening of Flight of Fancy a solo show by photographer and digital artist Anne Prather.
Artist, author, scientist and musician Anne Prather, whose book Mystic Intersections explores her early artistic journey, is delighted to share its continuation in her solo show Flight of Fancy.
A battle with breast cancer in 2015 left Prather without the cancer but with new challenges in her artistic career. “As my eyesight has changed, I‘ve learned to use the numbers in a color picker to mix and match my colors and gradients, much like a painter uses a palette,” Prather says. A long-time textile fan, Prather used her new-found inner vision to transfer her images onto shimmering silk scarves. “It’s a complete blast to imagine, unhindered by looking at them, these images draped, tied and otherwise reshaped by the cloth.”
Her current show Flight of Fancy explores specific aspects of her emergence as a sighted person and post-cancer return to near-blindness. “In my head I still have 20/20 vision,” Prather says. Flight of Fancy reflects this vision.
Gallery North would like to invite you to the artist’s reception for Flight of Fancy on Saturday July 8 from 1-4 PM. You can also meet Anne and other gallery members at the Edmonds Art Walk on Thursday July 20 from 5-8PM. This exhibit will be open to the public July 1-31.
