Deb Stone – Pay Attention To What You Pay Attention To

Location: Portland Art Museum
Dates: March 21st, 2018
Hours: 12pm-1pm

Free, and open to the public.

For this presentation, I’ll talk about my life and career as an artist. I’ll tell you about my work of part-time teaching, making art objects for others, designing eyewear for fashion industry, and running a small business. I’ll show you the work I did that led me through designing, making and teaching about eyewear as a jeweler, and how that informed and directed me in making my current work. Photography has always been a part of it, but had been the part of my artistic practice that gets attention when I’m not too busy doing other things to earn a living. In the past five years, that has changed, with my full time commitment to making still life photographs of flora and tiny fauna. I’ll show you lots of images that might increase your awareness of how beautiful the world is, and what inspires me.
