Coming Soon: On Waters of Time – Sculpture and 2D Works by Corrina Sephora

“Freedom of Flight,” Corrina Sephora, forged and fabricated steel, recycled steel, cast iron. 3′ x 9′ x 5′

Corrina Sephora’s solo exhibition at Callanwolde will include sculptures outside on the front lawn and 2D works in the Gallery.

Her work uses boat and water imagery both literally and metaphorically, and over the years, it has expanded in multiple directions including imagination, history, tragedy and fantasy.  She explores and creates inside the theme of “We are all in the same boat”; providing a port to launch courage, acceptance, equality, and freedom in the journey—a collective journey—and contemporary immigration.

The exhibition will run from June 29 to September 1st.

Join us for the opening reception on Thursday, June 29, 7-9 PM.
