Kiera Faber, Drawing Silence in Art

Kiera Faber, affiliated with Twin Cities Friends Meeting, Minnesota, a member of both our Steering Group (and also Membership Secretary) and the Working Group for these Creative Conversations, will present our seventh ‘Creative conversation’: 2 Dececember 2021: Kiera Faber, Drawing Silence in Art.

Kiera writes:
I consider myself a cultural Quaker, similar to Humanistic Judaism (https://shj.org/), where the rituals and cultural constructs of a particular religion strengthen a sense of community, purpose, and meaning. The rich practices of waiting and sitting in communal silence, valuing and speaking from personal truths, and not needing to follow a specific creed are the Quaker constructs I find affirming.

This past summer, I created intimate investigations of light, form, and place around my home through the photographic process of cyanotypes on cotton.  I will be sharing ten original images I made just for our QM+CC, along with some thoughts on seeing light and darkness anew through silence.

( more images to follow after Kiera’s talk).

I am affiliated with Northern Yearly Meeting (Twin Cities Friends Meeting (https://tcfm.org)  and hope to attend MfW via Zoom with Friends from my hometown of Rochester NY Friends Meeting soon (https://www.fgcquaker.org/cloud/rochester-ny-friends-meeting)
