Diversions Gallery/Artists’ Talk
Hear from artists Laura DuFrane Murphey, Judith Jopp, John Stumme, Debra Ripp, Linda Snoufffer, and Shirl Chouinard as they discuss their show, Diversions.
Our individual visual art is diverse—we all have different visions even at times when we use similar mediums or explore similar subjects. Through these years, we have grown in our abilities, sometimes altered artistic direction or just learned to explore new ideas as we shared our creative process with one another.
This exhibit celebrates our long-term connection with one another. These works illustrate how art was a diversion from the pandemic stresses as we retreated into studios to work alone. Some of us focused on adhering to the artistic paths on which we began; others deviated into a new artistic direction. We all have been fed by the creative force and continue to honor our connection to it and to one another.
