LATENT: An Exploration of Tulelake
2nd Saturday Art Opening & Reception for July
Join Siskiyou County photographers, Angelea Heartsong-Redding and Amanda Thomas at their opening reception on Saturday, July 14th from 5-7pm. The exhibit will continue in the Museum Space at SAM through Saturday, September 1st.
From the Artists’ Statement:
The early spring of 2017 marked the 75th anniversary of Executive Order #9066, which led to the incarceration of 120,000 Japanese American citizens and immigrants. We were inspired to visit the internment camp in Tulelake to reflect on history and what it has to offer us in the present, and simply to take pictures.
About the Artists:
Angelea Heartsong-Redding is a photographic artist based out of rural northern California. Her work is classical, utilizing silver gelatin film and traditional darkroom printing methods.
Amanda Thomas is a multidisciplinary artist based in northern California. As a single parent, her practice, processes, and ideas are heavily influenced by the demands of her life. In her work, this manifests as a recognition of the myriad ways there are of living, a cry for changes in the social order, and a celebration of the resilience of the human spirit.
