Catherine Mellinger: Deep Salt Water
September 22–November 4, 2017
Reception: Friday, September 22, 7PM
Catherine Mellinger and Marianne Apostolides in Conversation: Sunday, October 22, 1:30 - 3:30 PM
Catherine Mellinger's mixed-media collage works create something of beauty from what might not be perceived as beautiful: trauma, loss, and mental illness. This suite of collages, created for the book Deep Salt Water (BookThug, 2017) by Marianne Apostolides, began with an exchange between the artist and writer based on a series Mellinger created to explore her experience with clinical postpartum anxiety.
