Join the Atlanta History Center for an evening with artist Linda Anderson as she discusses her life and work. Anderson is a visual storyteller whose paintings evoke the realities of her childhood growing up in the rural mountains of North Georgia. Triggered by her memories, her works depict scenes of family celebration, agricultural serenity, and of working in the fields, including flashbacks from Sunday school as well as activities of her parents, such as her father making moonshine and her mother’s sewing and embroidering. Flashes of Memory is the first book to document Anderson’s work and allows her paintings to become as alive to the viewer as the works are a part of her past. A self-taught artist, Anderson is one of America's foremost memory painters and has been captivating others for nearly three decades as part of a fading breed of folk artists. (jasbro)
