Framed: Works by Erin Brady Worsham 

When: Sat., Nov. 13, 5:30-9 p.m. and Sun., Nov. 14, 1:30-4 p.m. 2010
If you're one of those chronic excuse makers — e.g., “I want to play piano but my hands are too small” or “I'd love to take up tennis but I'm too old” — then let Erin Brady Worsham inspire you to break through those ridiculous self-imposed limitations. A classically trained artist and actress, Worsham was 36 years old when, in 1994, she was diagnosed with ALS and given three years to live. Not only has Worsham outlived those expectations fivefold, she's been making digital art for the last 10 years. No longer able to speak, move her body, or breathe independently, Worsham creates her art using a wire sensor taped between her eyebrows that tracks her facial movements. Her detailed graphic works, which take anywhere from 60 to 300 hours to complete, are bold, crisp and colorful. “The Opening,” presumably a scene from an art reception, features cubist elements, the back of a nude woman, a quizzical boy peering out of the frame with his fingers dangling over the edge — imagine a mash-up of Picasso, Dali and Peter Max, or perhaps a cartoon drawn by Fellini. Best of all, Worsham proves that a computer can transmit an artistic vision every bit as distinct as can a paintbrush. All donations and proceeds from sales of art will go directly to Worsham and her family, whose finances have been hit particularly hard by the recession and recent flood.
