Art Obituaries

Art Obituaries is an immensely interesting project designed to commemorate "art that was" by documenting accounts of an artwork's death, and thus creating a living discourse where there once was none.

Through an online process on their website, they invite artists to document the untimely or planned death of their work of art, providing a rare glimpse into an artwork's eleventh hour, exploring the nature of an artwork's life, death, and the process in-between. Artists are encouraged to investigate the concept of their artwork's obituary through a written or photo essay, text, image or whatever creative expression that pays proper tribute to their dearly departed.

Rose Folsom’s artwork grows out of her life-long passion for writing and of her years as a professional calligrapher. After years of study in classical western writing, Ms. Folsom began to explore writing as an expressive art: words and moving lines working together to say something new through their shape, movement and color.

Rose Folsom: Written Paintings will be on display at the first floor galleries in Strathmore Mansion on Rockville Pike opening on November 20th from 3-5PM. The show goes through Dec. 30th.
