The Monona Public Library and Absolutely Art are featuring a new art exhibit called Impressions on a Dream Canvas. The art will be displayed at the Monona Public Library from April 7 to May 31. Inspired by a dream, the exhibit is based on the 29 chapter illustrations in Ann E. Aswegan’s book entitled Awakening to the Song of Your Self: Revelations by Day & Dreams by Night. Cindy Martinelli collaborated with Ann to provide project management, graphic design, and technical support. They utilized recent innovations in heat transfer technology to print images and text onto vintage embroidered pillowcases. The original artwork from Ann’s book was created by Kristin Sobol.
There will be a presentation and artist reception on April 18 at 2 pm at the Monona Public Library. Ann Aswegan and Cindy Martinelli will discuss the innovative approaches they used to put the art exhibit together and describe what went on behind the scenes. Light refreshments will be provided.
