Beth Gilmore's Tell Me a Story
Date/Time:Sun., May 10, 1:00pm-9:00pm
Price: Free



Beth Gilmore's installation Tell Me a Story gives the local artist an opportunity to bring her art home again. Gilmore--a long-time employee at the Mansion--has borrowed images from Ward-Belmont College in her collages and paintings, which have always favored historical discovery to pop-cultural pillaging. Displaying her latest creation in an un-restored space in the venerable manse gives Gilmore the ultimate opportunity: making art out of the building itself. This unique pairing will give Gilmore a chance to blur the line between different storytelling forms, but--like all historical events--this one will be fleeting. The exhibit shows tonight only.
