Felicia Rice & Theresa Whitehill: Heavy Lifting Exhibit Opening
August 4, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Heavy Lifting Listening Tour and Exhibit is coming to the Pacific Textile Arts Gallery in Fort Bragg. The exhibit will open on First Friday, August 4, 2023 from 5–8 pm. The exhibit runs from Friday, August 4 through Thursday, August 31. The Heavy Lifting Listening Tour event will take place on Saturday, August 5 (time to be confirmed). To contact the venue, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This exhibition is part of the Heavy Lifting Listening Tour. The tour aspires to offer opportunities for healing, and dreaming, through dialogue. An introduction to the project opens a display of the artists’ book and of the experimental film, On Heavy Lifting, that accompanies the book. This is followed by a conversation between poet Theresa Whitehill and the audience in which she alternates reading her poems with an invitation for audience members to read their own work or share brief stories in response to the themes and material.
The Listening Tour kicks off in March 2023 in Caspar and will occur monthly in communities impacted by the wildfires throughout northern California in 2023.
