The Hippodrome Theatre Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition of illustrations and collage created by women incarcerated at the Florida Women’s Reception Center (FWRC) in Lowell, Fla.
“From the Inside” will run from Jan. 5 – Feb. 10, 2019 with a special reception on Jan. 25 from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m at Artwalk.
Since 2013 volunteers of the Journey Daybook organization have taught the process of making illustrated journals to small groups of incarcerated women at the Florida Women’s Reception Center (FWRC) in Lowell, Fla. Journey Daybook pages capture a moment in time, a sight, a sound, a sense, a tiny piece of one person’s perception.
Thirteen gallery artists will be featured in the show: Rozzi Kunz, Jackie Kennedy, Ashley Dizdar, Betty Kirk, Deborah Rice, Latesha Brokenshire. Lori Steele, Heather Bruen, Jamie Davis, Lisa Wisor Serratore, Brandi Murch, Jennifer Graves and Celeste Frotten. Many of the works center around the types of sights and sounds that these women have personally experienced in the justice system.
Visual works range from delicate watercolor landscapes, stream of consciousness poetry, graphic ink illustration and found object collage.
“From the Inside” will run through Feb. 10, 2019. The volunteer staff of the Journey Daybook organization will be present at the Gainesville Artwalk reception on Jan. 25 from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Sunday noon till “close of shows,” and by appointment.
