What Makes a Story Worth Telling?

by Marie Malicki

“When in that aha moment you experience inner peace, outward success, an emotional meltdown, it takes your breath away, it helps others to find their voice, or when you are opened to the unexpected, the story is worth telling.”

Marie is one of eight In Print members to have her work featured at the Allegory Project, an art space and exhibition co-sponsored by the Art Matters Artist Coop and the Rockford Area Arts Council. The Allegory Project plans to have a theme that is explored in various art forms: painting and sculpture, photography, repurposed objects, and the spoken and written word.

Marie’s piece and the others have been framed at the gallery and are available for viewing from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday through the end of May. The show space is on the northwest corner of Madison and Prairie Streets in Rockford.
