Yesterday I went to the opening reception of Crab Orchard Cemetary Revisited at the Peninsula Art Museum. This exhibition of the late Jo Hanson's installation was curated by NCWCA artist Eleanor Dickinson, a good friend of Jo's. As soon as one enters the gallery, one steps into a different world. Recorded birdsong and other ambient sounds plus the black and white photographs of cemetary vegetation printed on clear plastic sheets form the backdrop for these tombstones carved out of styrofoam. Jo returned to the actual cemetary in Illinois several times to capture the feeling of this solitary and creepy place.
