WILLIAM CAPEL SLACK: A Ho' Nuva Levo
Master print maker and longtime Homewood Studios friend, William Capel Slack, returns to our gallery with what promises to be his most interesting show so far, (and he has had three amazing shows here in the past few years).
Bill has uncovered some plates from prints he made in the eighties, when he was forty. He plans to take those plates to Highpoint Center for Printmaking during the month of November and "do something" with them, taking them to A Ho' Nuva Levo.
Besides the usual opening reception, Bill is planning something special for this show. He wants to honor arts specialists, (our local endangered species), from throughout the Twin Cities, and will host a special reception for them, combined with his Gallery Talk on Wednesday, December 16th.
Opening Reception - Saturday, December 5th from 5p to 8p
Specialists Nation & Gallery Talk - Wednesday, December 16th beginning at 6p with formal talk at 7p
Having Bill's prints in our gallery for a month allowed for some magical and important moments to transpire. The color and vibrancy of the prints invited folks in from the street for a further look. Chatting with them about Bill's process, about his issues and themes, about who he is, opened many eyes to new thoughts about art, about color, about identity, about questions one might be interested in asking...
From Omitunde Slack:
My brother is "a ho nuva levo." He always has been on a different plane growing up. I have always been fascinated with the process of his artistry. He is very unique in so many ways..... and I'm am not biased bcuz he is my big brother. I am so very impressed with his talent I wanted to let everyone know how much I love and appreciate his talent. MPLS is lucky to have him in their midst.
