ART: Lavinia Roberts' Black Triangle

Thursday, Feb. 22, at the Visual Arts Collective



Browsing Lavinia Roberts' website is a bit like crossing into another world. Photos of her art show children lofting torso-sized paper hands, fashion models in gold masks and trees growing out of suitcases. For her month as artist-in-residence at Surel's Place, however, Roberts focused on her other passion: writing plays as magical as her "wearable sculptures" that have been produced in more than 30 cities nationwide. Roberts' latest work, Black Triangle, is about a lawyer on the hunt for "self-definition, as well as ghosts," who delves into the history of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, and will debut at Visual Arts Collective in partnership with the Alley Repertory Theater series "The Age of Women."
