New Arts Mill exhibit reflects on memories

    Artists Chloé Allyn and Cristian Andersson will have their works on display in the show “Today is Learning About Tomorrow” at the Arts Mill in Grafton through mid-September.
    Allyn does large-scale poetry while Andersson creates paintings, and in their art they muse on the past and decide how to contextualize their memories and present them to the public.
    For Allyn, it is through her choice of words and structure that is either embroidered onto wearable items or painted onto large sheets of canvas, transforming the intimate exchange of poetry into something that is public and communal.
    Andersson’s paintings begin as fully completed works and then are obfuscated through layers of white as he presents a past that begins to lose its ability to be recognized but instead becomes forgotten or hidden.
    The show runs through Sept. 15.
    An artist reception will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7.
    The Arts Mill is at 1300 14th Ave.
