Amy Williams to Do Q&A at The Purple Moon

Charleston artist Amy Williams will present Q&A: A Visual and Preformance Art Experience at The Purple Moon for the September ArtWalk.

Every day our minds are filled with questions… about ourselves, about others. In this art experience, Amy Williams explores the ideas of questioning and answering our own and other’s questions.

Born from her experience of asking other people’s opinions more than trusting her own, the artist was called to explore what it was she truly wanted to know about herself and her life… and why she was always depending on someone else to answer these important matters for her.

Complicating matters is Williams’ work as a therapist where people often come seeking answers, or so it would appear.

“Someone once told me be careful giving advice, as even when people ask for it they rarely want it,” says the artist. “I fully understand this as I am the same way. I could ask 20 people to help solve a dilemma for me. Even if all 20 said the same thing I probably wouldn’t listen to them. We all make our decisions in our own ways and in our own time.”

The artist has differentiated between seeking wisdom from people you respect and just being a victim, helpless and wanting others to tell you what to do. Her visual and performance pieces will address these two aspects. In this exhibit, Williams combines a collection of question and answer word bubble paintings with a performance piece of the artist doing her personal take on Lucy’s lemonade/advice stand from Peanuts.
