Local artist , William Capel Slack, offers a show of his recent works, entitled "Embracing My Own Voodoo".

Opening Reception Satruday, April 24th from 6 to 9 p.m.

Gallery Talk Tuesday, May 11th at 7 p.m.

Bill's Gallery Talk, offered in his low-key, informal style, belied the depth of his ideas. Bill spoke of his research into Voodoo, which stems from an African word for spirit,/i>, into the roots of his own spirit in African history and in how own psyche resulting in the discovery of several warriors (male images) and protectors (female images) in his work. He also answered questions about his method, spending hours on a single place, laying down layers and layers of paint, before running the print through the press all in one pass.

Thoughtful and illuminating information. Affable conversation. A good evening.
