Artist takes a skip through Ethiopia

-A A +A
By Special to the Monitor

A photographic journey through Ethiopia is currently on display at Village Arts, located at 216 DP Road.
The exhibit features work by local artist, Brandon Stone, as well as the photography of fellow travelers.  
An opening reception is planned from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, where the artist will be present to speak about his work and his plans to return to Ethiopia.
Occasionally something or someone will touch your heart and change your life.  The people and places of Ethiopia have made their impression on Stone, so much so that he hopes to pass those impressions on. What follows is just part of the story and Stone hopes that those who attend the opening will seek out his work at the Coffee Booth and Village Arts to learn more.
Stone notes the following: “Standing on a muddy street corner in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, with Samson my translator at my side my senses overwhelm me. A pungent odor of exhaust and livestock fills the air as we dart across traffic trying not to get hit by the auto-rickshaws, three wheel cars that flood the streets. We pass by countless hovels stocked with goods for sale as we traverse the muddy landscape. As we walk, I see young girls cooking corn on makeshift charcoal grills and young boys offering to shine shoes for a menial Birr, equivalent to eight American cents.
