The Callanwolde Fine Arts Center Gallery presents On Waters of Time, a solo exhibition by Atlanta artist Corrina Sephora, June 29 – September 1, 2017. Sephora will present a series of metal sculptures on the front lawn of Callanwolde’s Candler Mansion, along with mixed media drawings in the Gallery, all of which will reflect her predominant use of boat and water imagery.

Opening reception: Thursday, June 29, 2017, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. General admission is $5. Free to Callanwolde members.

Artist talk: Thursday, July 27, 2017, 7:00 p.m. Free and open to the public.

Sephora has worked with boat and water imagery for the past decade. Using such imagery both literally and metaphorically, and over the years, the theme has expanded in multiple directions including imagination, history, tragedy and fantasy.

Of her work, Sephora writes, “I am inspired by the Vikings and the boats that they created to send their dead to the next world; my grandfather was a sea captain, and I grew up with boats and water as my surroundings; and I am also fascinated with immigration, migration and the journeys of life. My work and collaborative projects often share and cultivate aspects of family, memory and personal history through art as a form of transformation.”
