David Lusk Gallery
To all art or literary critics, aspiring novelists, exhibiting artists, book club members, art educators, English teachers or English majors, fans (or haters) of A Prairie Home Companion, artists, writers, or just those who enjoy a good book or looking at art:
Join us and/or for a walk through of SUMMER READING with guest curator Matt Crow. Matt selected works from DLG that visually elaborate upon passages from books that might be on a school's summer reading list.
The morning promises to be edifying on so many levels. Don't miss out on your SUMMER READING.
The passage for Veda Reed's Red Clouds, Red Sky:
"It was dark now, and as we dipped under a little bridge, I put my arm around Jordan's golden shoulder and drew her toward me and asked her to dinner. Suddenly I wasn't thinking Daisy and Gatsby any more, but of this clean, hard, limited person, who dealt in universal skepticism, and who leaned back jauntily just within the circle of my arm. A phrase began to beat in my ears with a sort of heady excitement: 'There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy, and the tired."
From The Great Gatsby | F. Scott Fitzgerald | 1925
