UPCOMING EXHIBITION

Charma Le Edmonds: Untold Stories |  July 8 - July 31, 2022

Curated by Jack Rasmussen
Director and Curator of the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center

Popcorn Gallery Hours: Saturdays & Sundays, 12 pm – 6 pm

Opening Reception: Friday, July 8, 6 – 8 pm

As a native Choctaw, storytelling was a part of Charma Le Edmonds’s heritage. And, like the Surrealists before her, she relied on automatic drawing as the basis of her imagery. Her drawings form a layered story within the paintings. This intuitive process creates a psychological depth using veils of layered colors and pattern contrasted with solid blocks of color and intricate detail, mirroring the overlays of experience in our day-to-day lives. They represent the struggle of recovery and of fundamental human conflict. Her art is a search for beauty in nature and harmony between life and death as a source of strength and reflection.
