Meet the Artist: Michael Mau

November 16, 2016 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
JCPL at Gallery

Michael Mau is a writer, teacher, father, runner, tinkerer, artist, craftsman, and a self-proclaimed snappy dresser. He began his writing career at the prestigious Green Valley News and Sun in Arizona but went on to teach high school. His award-winning short fiction has appeared in numerous journals, earning him national attention. Mau’s cardboard reliefs are on display in the JCPL gallery from Ocotber 19 through November 28.  Each image begins as a photograph, is sketched onto cardboard, then carved into an almost three-dimensional work of art. The subjects of his work include homeless people, forgotten places and unnoticed details.  In his in own words, “I portray what is often ignored on a medium that is often wasted.” Come meet Michael, watch him work and learn more about his inspirations and experiences. Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome.
