FACILITATED BY GLENN LAWSON + NEIL CROUCH
Artist Neil Crouch and writer Glenn Lawson will be presenting an artist talk and facilitated discussion in the George Sawchuck Room at the Comox Valley Art Gallery. The talk will be about “The Train”, a piece of visual and written art that Neil and Glenn collaborated on for the Image to Text to Image show.
Some themes captured in the work are railway, model railroads, old hardware stores, loss, grieving, reconciliation and redemption.
A brief description of the collaborative process and the individual approaches to their work will be shared by Neil and Glenn followed by a reading of the short story, “The Train”. After a short break, the group will discuss personal experiences associated with the stories themes. Refreshments will be served.
