Firehouse Art Center Artist Member of the Year: Stephanie Hilvitz presents “Crossings: Migration/Immigration/Transcendence”

From the Artist:
“This body of work represents a decade of looking at migration/immigration and transcendence through the lens of the Monarch butterfly migration.

Thru the image of the monarch butterfly; fragments of text and story I am exploring the conversation between life and death, spirit and soul, survival of species and the vessel of the seed to disperse these ideas. The humble milkweed pod representing to me, the human struggle and contrast between free-flowing vs restricted movement.

The beautiful ancient Mexican belief that the monarchs return each year after a 3000 mile migration as the souls of loved ones who have died expresses how we as people use myth and imagination to transcend loss and accept what cannot be truly known. My spirit houses/spirit dolls embody these concepts as my way to honor and remember family. “

Artist in Residence Roberta Restaino @ Firehouse Art Center. Jan 30-March 2

Working in traditional printmaking and creative construction, Restaino will use her time in the Residency to work on her own invention: an imaginative take on historical catalogues of natural history she has named the Encyclopedia of the Anthropocene. “Anthropocene”—from anthropo, for “man,” and cene, for “new”—because human activities have caused mass extinctions of plant and animal species. The residency will culminate in an immersive exhibition of these creatures rendered into a three-dimensional environment, accompanied by shadow-box “specimens” and an interactive drawing. Visit Roberta in the South Gallery from November through January to add your own creativity to the construction. Supplies provided through the sponsorship of ACE Hardware Longmont.
