Lori K. Gordon: The Katrina Collection
October 18–October 24, 2011, Warwick Center
Artist Talk: October 18, 4–5pm, Cultural Arts Building 2033
In 2005, Gordon was doing work on the Mississippi Gulf Coast when her studio and artworks were destroyed by a storm surge from Hurricane Katrina. She returned a few weeks later and began creating new collages of art using rubble and objects found in the destruction that remained. "The Katrina Collection" showcases mixed media pieces made from the rubble. Gordon's work can be found in galleries across the country, Barack Obama's private collection and in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C.
