“THE ARTIST’S MIND’’: An Evening with the Artists”
Marietta Patricia Leis & David Vogel
IONION CENTER FOR THE ARTS & CULTURE
October 19, 2013
“THE ARTIST’S MIND: An Evening with the Artists” will explore the creative processes and what goes on in the mind of the artists as they are conceiving, executing and eventually exhibiting their art.
Leis and Vogel, Artist Residents at The Ionion Center for the Arts Culture, will facilitate the evening by discussing their art careers and how their lives and travels influence their work.
Antarctica will be one of the featured topics in the artist talk by David Vogel and Marietta Patricia Leis. Their expedition in January-February was exhilarating, breathtaking and inspirational. A wonderful slide show of their adventures by Vogel will be part of their exhibition. They will also discuss how Kefalonia has inspired their current ideas and work including: the conceptualization, execution, and intended exhibition outcomes. The audience will be invited to look, listen and participate during the discussion and exhibit.
The evening will have the feel of entering the artist’s studios and having an insider view of The Artist’s Mind. The intention of their Artist Residency will be to create work that is “of & from” the local area. It is impossible to predict exactly what will ultimately be created and shown at the Ionian Center or whether it will be in process or in completed form. It is a “discovering adventure” for both the artists and audience.
Part of the exhibit may include cyanotypes, a type of photography that utilizes local material, perhaps octopus, to create images. Additional photography will also be utilized to interpret Kefalonia, Antarctica and other locations.
Leis and Vogel, a creative married couple from New Mexico, USA, of international renown will create an interesting, fun and interactive experience for the folks who attend this event.
