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. (NB: pictured is a section of “Bolton Orchards” by Crane)
“At its most basic level, a pseudonym is a prank” declares anthologist, writer and critic CARMELA CIURARU. By what some of the most famous authors of the last one hundred years chose to write under another name is often a more complex and entertaining story. Having a pseudonym can be practical, or offer the writer the license to be more honest, or even lie. Each author’s relationship with his or her alter ego over time is unique, sometimes troubling, and therein lays some juicy literary history. Join us tonight for a peak behind the mask of writers like George Eliot, Lewis Carroll, James Tiptree Jr., and Pauline Réage. Carmela Ciuraru’s entertaining book is titled NOM DE PLUME: A (SECRET) HISTORY OF PSEUDONYMS.
