The Dalet Gallery will dedicate its space to the many aspects of Ellen Peckham’s works – not only her prints (the dark, mystical ones containing her dark poems and the colorful abstract ones that support her haiku) but also collages, constructions and some amusing items of wearable art.
And if that were not challenge enough to any curator the poems, often integral to the visual work, will be featured in a reading and performance of them in musical settings by Gerald Busby. A rather a-typical “catalog” that includes information on the history and
impetus of the various works from sketches and notes to finished pieces, is available and includes a CD of the music. The exhibition, book and CD are together called Continuum: the Art of Ellen Peckham for the attempt the artist has made to lead the view/reader through the history, the development of the pieces on view over, often, decades.
