Open to the public.
Sheryl Southwick says of I On the Road Connecting Us: “It all started with the black tar marks, looking like calligraphy. I’ve always loved calligraphy, so the marks visually grabbed me as they held the road together in repair. Guess I’d never noticed them up close before. I was taking a walk in Magnolia Woods in Baton Rouge when they took hold of my imagination, setting my focus on roads. I had certainly taken them for granted: what roads actually do is provide us with connections to other people. Memories, personal and collective, came to mind. They keep coming. Now I’m on an endless road of ideas.”To learn more about Sheryl Southwick and her artwork, visit the artist’s website:
