Potency of Process Artists’ Talk and Reception

Sep 28, 2016 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM

The Center for Contemporary Art & Culture at PNCA is pleased to present

Potency of Process: Moving Through Breast Cancer.

This exhibition brings together the practices of two Pacific Northwest artists who have independently developed a body of work to address the issue of the human body in trauma. Both survivors of breast cancer, Martha Banyas and Deborah Horrell created series that helped them express the experience of coming to terms with their diagnosis, the journey through treatment, and the road to recovery. Banyas and Horrell utilize enamel and glass, favor additive processes, and employ narrative techniques, to explore the role and the power that art and craft have in healing.
