First Saturday Gallery Crawl: March 4, 2017; 6-9pm
Blend Studio will be hosting three films by Michelle Lee Salnaitis during the month of March. The artist will be available on the opening night of the First Saturday Art Crawl. Join us from 1-3PM on March 18th for an artist talk by Michelle Lee Salnaitis on what has inspired her films and what goes into her practice.
The three films that comprise Reconstruction Site are a document of an unraveling;
An untying of the knots of a familial karmic inheritance.
What begins as a quiet unfolding of a narrative surrounding loss, history, memory, and nation; Ends in the transformative and purifying fires of forgiveness and letting go.
Michelle Lee Salnaitis is a student of language, more so a student of silences and that which words cannot reach. It is her desire and longing to find word or image to articulate the seemingly incommunicable tender blind spots of the human condition. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts from the University of Northern Colorado and a Master of Fine Arts from Vermont College of Fine Arts.
