October 20th—The Archer’s Paradox—Black Spruce Gallery—Fine Art, Artist Talk, Poetry Reading by Erika Duchene. “An art exhibition with my collective series thus far in my exploration as an Art Therapist in training. I have been working on the personal symbolism of the arrow as well as the animals within each work, in this, the paradox before the release. As I complete my thesis and deepen my understanding of my work and myself, I put the emotion into the art and the words of my poetry. I wish to share with my audience the experience of my journey on this evening with an artist talk to address my work, as well as a reading of the poetry that correlates with each piece. You can visit my website for further information about me and the work I’ve done thus far at www.drawntounearth.com “
