The HCC Ybor City School of Visual and Performing Arts gallery presents a mixed media installation by the Oiseaux Sisters - Traveler’s Tales: The Mind’s Eye, The Hand’s Work, The Heart’s Desire in celebration of Women’s History Month. The exhibit runs from March 3rd to 29th. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
 
An artist’s reception will take place on Thursday, March 3rd from 4:30 - 8:00 p.m. with the gallery talk beginning at 6:15 p.m.
 
The Oiseaux Sisters, Carolyn Fellman and Susan Andrews, migrate seasonally from Moravia, NY to Gulfport, FL, with periodic detours to Mexico, Europe and Asia. In this installation, they report on a lifetime of going away and coming back different. En route they collect materials, images and idea for work. In the studio, they paste, color, snip, stamp and hammer, making biographical or mythological figurative pieces that tell stories, incorporating humor, movement and metaphor. The media they mix includes cloth, clay, plaster, paper, tin, carved and painted wood, and found objects. Whether travel talismans, small prayers, or fairy tales, the work mixes reminiscence and invention to celebrate detours, entreat safe departures and arrivals, and court chance.
 
The HCC Ybor City Art Gallery is located in the Performing Arts Building, first floor, Palm Ave and 15th street. Regular hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10 a.m. – 4.pm. & Tuesday noon to 7 p.m. Parking is available in the HCC visitor lots, the Ybor Garage on 15th St and the Nuccio Parking Garage.
