If you missed my Army Wife exhibit last September in Charlottesville, VA, there’s a second chance to see it next summer at the Arts Council of Moore County near Ft Bragg, NC! To make the exhibit even more special, I’ll be teamed up with photographer Hunter Rudd and selected pieces from the Combat Paper Project. It’s going to be a wonderful community event. I’m very excited to be able to share my work again with a larger audience and I’m especially happy that the exhibit will bring together the military and civilian communities in the area.
At this point, the Arts Council need to do some fundraising — mostly to get the Combat Paper pieces (and hopefully a workshop!) on loan, but also to help facilitate getting me and my work to NC. They have come up with a wonderful sponsorship program. I am happy to send specifics to anyone who is interested — please comment or email me if you or someone you know would like to participate and I will email you the PDF that is also attached below plus the other information it references.
HOMEFRONT & DOWNRANGE:Witness the Art in Military Life
June 5-July 10, 2015 | Campbell House Galleries Art Exhibit Description:
Using art as a catalyst for conversation, HOMEFRONT & DOWNRANGE: Witness the Art in Military Life will be an art exhibit that will take a deep and personal look at several aspects of military life: An Army wife’s story through narrative textiles by Kristin La Flamme, a soldier’s story through photographs by Hunter Rudd, and the story of returning home from war through artwork selected from the Combat Papers Collection.
As our first art exhibit specifically focused on military life, the Arts Council of Moore County wishes to share the exhibit with the entire Sandhills community. We also hope the exhibit will honor our military’s sacrifices and service for the freedom we all enjoy.
In order for this exhibit to occur, we need financial support from sponsors. Homefront & Downrange Sponsor (short)
