Melody Fortier
'The Illusion of Time and Permanence'

As it Were

Local resident, Melody Fortier will have a visual study of her works on display in the Library's Exhibit Gallery through mid-February. Her pieces each begin with a series of photographic images. Each photograph is centrally mounted within a vignette of mixed media (crepe paper, shards of mica, vines and berries, glitter and the like). The final assemblage is encased in an embellished, glass sealed, shadow box and tagged with an etched brass plate citing the title, piece number and location coordinates of the photo location.
