Tonight on Inquiry we have a lively discussion with visual artists LISA BARTHELSON, ROSE LEBEAU and CARRIE CRANE. They are three of the four artists featured in the exhibition ILLUMINATIONS at the Krikorian Gallery at the Worcester Center for Crafts. (The fourth artist Nina Fletcher was unable to be here for the interview). Each artist has interpreted the idea of “illuminations” differently and each is showing new work. Tune in tonight to learn about the visions and work of these three very different and visually compelling artists.
