The Age Of Experience: We Tell Better Stories

An exhibition of new work by Amy Fleming focusing on issues of ageism. The Claude Pepper Center, 636 West Call Street, Tallahassee.

This exhibition works to change the narrative around the topic of aging by focusing attention on the many vibrant members of the elder community. In “The Age of Experience: We Tell Better Stories” images of mass produced discards find new life as impossible robes and royal collars made from pump valves and vacuum tubes, pull tab rings reappear as chain mail, soda bottles form crowns and halos.

Amy has been working with members of the City of Tallahassee Senior Center to create a series of screen and relief printed portraits. Participants in the project range in age from 60 to their mid 90's. Amy Fleming is an Adjunct Professor of Printmaking and Print Lab Manager at Florida State University. Her work is included in public and private collections including the Jean and Alexander Heard Library at Vanderbilt University, and the Southern Graphics Council International permanent collection at Kennesaw State University.
