And So the Word Had Breath
Works by Chrystia Mycyk and Lori Brethour-Coulter

Until April 4
From 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily
Exhibition Room D
Free admission

A series of works by local artists Chrystia Mycyk and Lori Brethour-Coulter are featured in the exhibition And So the Word Had Breath --  a photographic and mixed-media exploration of the book.

Chrystia examines books through portraiture photography, depicting them as art forms that capture the thoughts and artistic strivings of humanity. Lori chooses to deconstruct the book and re-creates, in its stead, a series of three-dimensional pieces, which embody the book as object and as the repository of the human story.
