Closing Reception: Juanita Guccione: Defiant Acts with Remarks by Djelloul Marbrook

When: Sat., Nov. 1, 5:30-7 p.m. 2014

Juanita Guccione (1904-1999) is one such artist whose work -- and life -- mirrored the radically creative and philosophical underpinnings of Surrealism. Guccione infused social realism, cubism, surrealism and abstraction with her own indefinable and audacious style, creating an independent mythology and challenging social conventions in her art and life. Djelloul Marbrook is the author of five books of fiction and three poetry books, Far from Algiers (2008, Kent State University Press, winner of the 2007 Wick Poetry Prize and the 2010 International Book Award in poetry), Brushstrokes and glances (2010, Deerbrook Editions), and Brash Ice (forthcoming).
