Ingrid vB. Porter Artist Talk

July 13 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm


Saturday, July 13 | 12:30 – 2PM 

Join us in the Leyden Jar for an informal gathering of book artists and book arts enthusiasts. Exhibiting artist Ingrid vB. Porter will share the stories behind her work, joined by the Front Range Abecedarians for their monthly Front Range Artists’ Book Conversational Meet-Up.

About the Exhibit: 

We are shaped by our relationships – in obvious ways and in unseen ways.  When we choose partners, we learn to adjust here and there.  Give a bit of space. Grow in ways we hadn’t imagined.  We develop our own private language, our in-jokes.  Lean on and support each other.

Loss irrevocably changes us.  When we lose our person, we also lose who we were.

This body of work is an exploration of the uncharted territory that follows such a loss.  The artist finds inspiration in a variety of sources – mythology, the natural world, cultural mourning practices, lived experience, and familiar terms such as “widow’s fog” – to weave together themes of grief and hope, memory and the unknown, brokenness and resilience.

The artwork invites viewers to consider what shapes us, and the turning points that re-shape us.
