2nd Friday Art Walk Reception: 5:00 – 8:00 pm
Artist Statement by Sara Leith-Tanous – Dreams of Transformation
The writer, Rainer Maria Rilke, advised a young poet, “Then try, like some first human being, to say what you see and experience and love and lose.” I first read that when I was 15 and starting to build my life around photography. Those impulses still guide me.
I photograph what I see and experience and love and lose. You could say that I feel a connection and make a picture. Then I put photographs together, sometimes thematically, but more often in a dream-like arrangement. When an image calls to you, enter the piece and follow wherever your eye and heart take you.
Mundo Rio plays the sounds of Brazilian Bossa Nova and Samba, as well as a variety of other South American and Afro-Cuban music. Each musician brings a wealth of musical experience and love of this music to the group.
