Ritual + Time Travel = Rebirth: Images and Words by Michael Platt and Carol Beane on display now at the Stone Center’s  Brown Gallery.

time travler copyRitual + Time Travel = Rebirth: Images and Words by Michael Platt and Carol Beane features the work of married artists Michael Platt and Carol Beane. Platt creates artwork that centers on figurative explorations of life’s survivors, the marginalized, referencing history and circumstance in the rites, rituals and expressions of our human condition. For Platt and Beane, the creation of these images and poems was an endeavor—typical of their usual manner of sharing the same living, working, cooking, creative/creating space…thoughtful, mostly easy, together trying to find just the right combination of elements to “make magic.”

Ritual + Time Travel = Rebirth: Images and Words by Michael Platt and Carol Beane will be shown at the Stone Center’s Robert and Sallie Brown Gallery and Museum from January 29 through May 11, 2015.
