Artist Talk – Elody Gyekis & Joanne Landis

Join artists Elody Gyekis and Joanne Landis in the Lobby Gallery to discuss their collaborative exhibition Persephone / Persephone! The talk is free with standard admission. It will begin at 3pm with q&a to follow.

Persephone / Persephone features the multi-panel collaborative painting by Elody Gyekis and Joanne Landis. This large installation is inspired by the narrative arc of the Greek goddess Persephone’s story.

Gyekis and Landis layer paint on each other’s work and alternate the roles of both artist and Persephone. They explore the themes of birth and death, love and renewal, separation and reuniting, mother and daughter, and the seasons of the year. The artists both celebrate the power of women and explore diverse feminine mythologies and archetypes in their individual work. Together they build on these themes with mutual trust and respect, their collaborative process revealing the alchemical magic of collaboration.

This exhibition is made possible by Highmark, our 2021 – 2022 Lobby Gallery sponsor.
