The Macalester College Law Warschaw Gallery is pleased to announce Celluloid Covers, an exhibition of recent paintings from Angela Dufresne’s on-going series of paintings improvised from film scenes.

Describing the her painting process, Dufresne states “I relive the frames, like Gena Rowlands relives a role, or Tina Turner covers a Sly song. Through the process I have confronted forces I couldn’t meet on the street, or anywhere. I learn answers to questions I could not even ask. I have participated in stories I could never have been a part of.”

Angela Dufresne will be a Visiting Artist in the Macalester College Art Department. She will host an artist’s talk in the Gallery on Thursday, November 18 at 4:30. On Friday, November 19, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, the gallery will host a reception for the artist to celebrate Celluloid Covers opening.
