Amber Hansen:New Show at the Arts Center

The Lawrence Arts Center has three new shows that are all worth seeing ( December 2-January 14).  Work from Amber Hansen is in the front gallery.  The inspiration for her work comes from her inner child, and memories she had as a child, layered with consciousness of the artist.  In a brief statement at the opening for this exhibit, Hansen described a memory she had when she was seven.  "Suddenly I realized that there was a difference between adults and me. At that moment,  I told myself not to forget what it is like to be like to be seven." The installation includes intriguing video work.

Here are some pics from the opening on Friday.
