Come meet Artist Resident Anya Mitchell during her Open Studio hours and discuss shared desires regarding the idea of 'home'
From Anya's Artist Statement:
Inspired by the neighborhoods and culture of Savannah, Georgia I've been thinking about the way we divide ourselves into living a diversity of ways--thinking about how all our ways of living--for all the differences that exist--are all part of one community--though they feel worlds apart. I've been reflecting on our common desires: desires for a safe place to call home, for our children to be educated, to have access to food. Reflections on Desires embodies these reflections. Places of intersection in Savannah--homes, schools and grocery stores-- are woven together where patterns in the environment across images reflects the one reality in which these seemingly separate places exist.
I want to be in conversations based on a common understanding that we share this community, and that fulfilling these desires connects us all. I want to learn from my neighbors, my community. Let's talk about our shared desires and Savannah life. All are invited to the open studio times at Sulfur Studios to view these works, join an informal discussion on these themes and have a go at paper weaving.
