Transmutation and Metamorphosis: The Collages of Ann Irwin
Michener Art Museum
July 9 – October 16, 2011

Trees grow ribs and skulls. These transformations can be both ominous and optimistic, witty and wise; they arose from a life committed to creativity and represented a daily triumph over adversity.
