Lowe Mill A&E’s Artist Talk program provides an informal, intimate setting for artists, art lovers and patrons to spend time with Lowe Mill exhibiting artists. These events consist of a gallery walk with the artist, during which visitors can ask questions and learn about process and ideas behind the work, as well as time for less-structured interaction with the artist. Learn the story behind the newest piece for your collection. Refreshments will be served. This edition of Artist Talk features Chiharu Roach, the Birmingham-based artist behind our Third Floor West Gallery exhibition, No More Shallow Dreams. From the artist: I create each piece of art by first making a pencil outline. After it is complete I paint artist acrylics on wood panels and rice paper from my native Japan. I use fine brushes as they allow me to achieve the detail I require and the ability to paint each strand of hair.
