Friday, 2 November 2018 - 5:00pm

     In folk tales and stories of most every culture, tricksters appear with their hunger and their sly methods of getting their way and laughing at our surprise, making fun of our solemn certainties about life.  When we look into the mirror, we can catch a glimpse of that trickster gazing back at us.  We disguise ourselves as coyote, raven, spider, clown, joker, buffalo gal, poet, rabbit, redbird, fox, and then we are tricked by our own selves and tricked by each other.  

     Carolyn Schneider uses charcoal, pastel, and paint for her portraits of tricksters and tricky situations.   Her drawings show tricksters hanging out with each other, maybe having a drink and comparing stories, maybe making us laugh at ourselves, maybe luring us into bad situations that we have to get ourselves out of, maybe just gazing back with a knowing look
