Fran's Emails: Artwork by Fran Henry, Walter Korzec, and Ken Gagne
Anchor House of Artists, then New England Visionary Artists Museum (518 Pleasant Street, Northampton, MA 01060, Northampton MA)
This intimate, self-referential show, curated by its producer, Ken Gagne. He has chosen to present the emails of Fran Henry, wife of the artist/instructor Walter Korzec, along with Mr. Korzec's artworks. Gagne's includes his art as well. Gagne remembers Korcez as a teacher and mentor and through him became familiar with his wife. Fran Henry's emails take the form of short essays directed to an anonymous "friend" and discuss her daily journeys with cancer, the treatment, the place in her relationship with her husband, her mortality. Korec's art are assemblage and woodcuts. Gagne's works are inspired by his friends and he considers them as collaborations.
The three plan to hold a Artists Greet Reception on Sunday, January 8 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. along with the Arts Night Out reception held on Friday, January 13, 2023
