We would like to invite you June 4th, 2016 to the exhibition of the latest artwork project by Stephanie Corne called 'Embodiment', which is an invitation to see the inner self within the self. Stephanie's work will be on display as well as her previous series involving body paint called Facemotions and for the first time, you will have a chance to witness her workflow. It is part painting and part performance art; during the event there will be a multimedia show, where Stephanie will paint subjects in real time with live music. There will be two live performances at 2 pm and 4 pm with music by Birgid Volens, dancers Julian Watson and Mykaila Symes. The admission is free and we look forward to seeing you there!
