Opening Reception for “Kite Tales” @ J. Wayne Stark Galleries
Mar 29 @ 5:30 pm

Please join us as we welcome the latest exhibition to the J. Wayne Stark Galleries, Kite Tales!

Kite Tales combines two art forms: storytelling and artistic design. Each student exhibitor was tasked with telling a TALE and then interpreting with a TAIL.  The tale could be fiction or a recounting of an event, but each tail had to illustrate aspects of the story.  The stories told here range from tributes to favorite childhood fiction, poetry to historical figures.  Gaze skyward to enjoy the tales told by tails.
