BY MARY CIANI
@ VOL 8 ON SEP 13, 2016

"A few springs ago, I looked out over San Francisco Bay and I saw the city rising in the distance, above the fog, and I thought - I am going to draw water!"

In "Art of Warning: Making of the Flood Drawings" from PechaKucha Night Bryan Vol. 8, artist Mary Ciani presented “Flood”, her recent series – from drawings of living in harmony with first rivers to urgent ones warning of storm and final deluge. She looks, too, at visionary artists with images of the past, future, inventive assemblage, and spiritual connection. Even a prayer to the earth is included here. The drawings were collected into a book and art show.
