1:00 PM: Carol Tyler- Solider’s
Award winning American cartoonist, painter,
writer, educator and comedian Carol Tyler has garnered acclaim and
notoriety from both her peers and the public for her vision and
unabashed openness. Her illustrated autobiography Soldier’s Heart:
The Campaign to Understand My WWII Veteran Father, A Daughter’s
Memoir” (2015) describes the relationship she had with her father
and how his PTSD shaped her childhood. The adverse affects of her
upbringing results in a tale of truth, connection, and finally
resolution. The recent release of the book and the tangible
culmination of ten years of work come to fruition as we find Tyler
exploring the next chapter of her creative endeavors. This
exhibition serves as the purging of the past with fragments of past
projects, objects from her past and her fathers work shop. In
addition, we present a collection of artifacts from her life and
studio practice, which provides a look into the mind and spirit that
molds her vision of the world.
