A new exhibit at the Lawrence Arts Center, born of ongoing dialogue between two artists, recognizes and celebrates similarities and differences in the two women’s work.
“Conversation,” featuring all new work by Carol Ann Carter and Janet Davidson-Hues, opened Friday and runs through Jan. 12 at the Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire St. A free Insight Art Talk is planned for 7 p.m. Thursday at the Arts Center.
Carter is an interdisciplinary artist who, according to the Arts Center, “explores the creative possibilities present in the space between things, ideas, cultures and materials.” She has taught in the Kansas University visual art department since 1996.
Davidson-Hues, who earned her master’s degree in fine arts from KU, investigates and combines language, images and objects to create paintings and installations as well as performances and videos.
