Anderson House Exhibition Opening: Behind Closed Doors by Julie Sirek
The Anderson Center 163 Tower View Dr Red Wing, 7:00
The Anderson Center invites you to the opening reception of the exhibition of Behind Closed Doors, featuriing the work of Julie Sirek.  Julie Sirek is best identified as an artist with a social conscience. The issue of domestic violence is a constant theme in her work. She believes art is a vehicle capable of creating social awareness and change. Art breaks through barriers, connects across cultural differences, and engages our shared values. She works primarily with paper in conjunction with the process of joomchi. Through her adaptation of this ancient Korean technique, she transforms paper into a unique textile-like material. The artist will lead an informal discussion about her work to raise awareness of the devastating impact of domestic violence.

Flatt & Square @ The Staghead 6 - 8 pm
