BK Loren, author of Theft

Prize-winning fiction and nonfiction writer BK Loren will speak about Theft, her debut novel.

Melissa Cooke, Undertow Weightless

Melissa Cooke, Undertow Weightless

Melissa Cooke creates large scale drawings made by dusting thin layers of graphite onto paper with a dry brush. The softness of the graphite provides a smooth surface that can be augmented by erasing in details and textures. No pencils are used in the work, allowing the surface to glow without the shine of heavy pencil marks. Illusion dissolves into brush work and the honesty of the material. Cooke traverses a path, back and forth, first to work intimately with the surface and then to see the piece from a distance. This dance with her drawing has become a ritual, and ultimately, a release.
