Artist Talk and Performance
Artist talk by Clarity Haynes, whose traditional and non-traditional portraiture work is primarily concerned with emotional and psychological tensions. Her Breast Portrait series is currently exhibiting in the Paul Robeson Galleries' show, "What Cannot Be Cured Must Be Endured." She will be followed by Saul Melman, who is both an artist and an emergency room physician. His performance piece, "A Wound Drawn Together," explores the tension between control and chaos in his two occupations.
