Meikel Church: “The Whisper Kingdom”

By Leslie Newell Peacock

Jan. 17-Feb. 14, Argenta Branch of the Laman Library, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. weekdays. Opening reception 5-8 p.m. Jan. 17.

Meikel Church, "Save Me from Myself"

Collage artist Meikel Church “challenges concepts of perception,” his website says, by moving images from one setting and presentation to another. In his “The Last Time I Leave,” for example, an old photograph of a young boy in an oversized coat that signals he’s impoverished is placed next to a ship silhouette, as if the artist is sending him away. Like nearly all Church’s characters, the child wears a cut-out crown. Church doesn’t explain the crowns, but the gilt paper suggests he’s giving the child a bit of power. An opening reception for “The Whisper Kingdom,” 5-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 17, coincides with the Third Friday Argenta ArtWalk.
