Lansing artist featured at West Shore exhibit.

September 9, 2016


VICTORY TOWNSHIP — The first exhibit of the season at West Shore Community College’s Manierre Dawson Gallery highlights the work of Lansing artist, Aimee Brasseur. The exhibit will run until October 14, and is free and open to the public.

Brasseur’s composite photography often centers on themes of memory, time, and emotion. In the collected works of “Remanence,” the exhibit title, Brasseur explores the subjective nature of memory and our ability to record these memories in ways that protect not only ourselves but also those we love from the reality of our experiences.

Two-part storytelling, one-part catharsis, and each image is an allegorical representation of a page in her personal history. In short, these are stories from her life, retold the way she chooses to remember them. Using symbolism as both a tool and a shield, Brasseur continues to tell her story in a way that encourages viewers to use their imaginations to explore these artistic transmutations with a sense of wonder and mystery.

Brasseur’s work may be seen at the gallery in the Arts and Sciences Center. The gallery hours are Monday throughThursday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and it is open evenings and weekends during events in the Center Stage Theater.
