The talented Carol Redmond has chosen to create a mixed media piece on wood for the poem “Colorado River” by Fidel L.  Fidel was one of the two students chosen to attend the National Poetry Slam in New York last year and performed this poem.  He will also be performing this poem at the event, so be sure to buy your tickets today!

Taken from her biography on the Bonner David Galleries website, “from the moment she got serious about art in high school; her career has taken an artistic trajectory, with a BFA from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  She’s constantly been influenced by functional objects, such as embroidery and architecture in addition to art.  Even her teaching involves combining art practice with archeology and history.  

Redmond refrains from ascribing specific meanings to her art, ‘What I am trying to produce ideally is just enough imagery to start the imagination of the viewer, but to leave meaning totally open to interpretation’.”
