White-Ellery House Programs
An installation by Leslie Lyman and Karen Battles
In this one-day installation of multimedia work created specifically with the White-Ellery House in mind, artists Leslie Lyman and Karen Battles explore time, memory and imagination, focusing attention on the quotidian things people leave behind – photos, letters, clothing, boxes, books, etc. Using a thematic structure, the artists have designated that each of the five rooms in the house communicate a single concept – the Word, the Stitch, the Image, the Year and the Box – with the intention of placing the viewer in a different time and asking them to ponder the lives of those who lived here long ago. This program is free and open to the public.
Karen and Leslie are both mixed media artists living in Newburyport and Beverly Farms respectively.
