“Estuaries” Exhibition of Camille Voorhees at Wayne State College

“Change is the only constant in life.” This ancient Greek philosophy underscores the renewal, growth, and vitality reflected by artist Camille Voorhees of Omaha, NE. Estuaries, an exhibition of Voorhees works, opens Thursday, Aug. 29 in the Nordstrand Visual Arts Gallery at Wayne State College. An artist’s talk is scheduled from 3:45-4:15 p.m. in Gardner Auditorium with an opening reception at 4:30 p.m. in the gallery. Voorhees uses a special acid-filled pen to journal about life on textiles and paper. Once the text burns away, she stitches the mixed-media together. The resulting layers depict life’s creation, destruction, and change. The events are free and open to the public. The show runs through Sept. 26. For more information, contact Andy Haslit at (402) 375-7031.
