For the month of December, Shift Gallery will be showing a collaborative, multi-media project titled “Home”. This project is an exploration of ideas and perceptions of home using painted quilts, writings and sound.

The simple but complex question of “What is home?” has led artist and landscape architect David Traylor, writer and teacher William Marsh and civil rights leader and radio jazz program host Stephen Braunginn on a years-long reflection on memory, survival, rootedness and narrative.

Traylor is donating work from Home to Rev. Rick Reynolds at seattlenightwatch.org to be used or exhibited at their facilities which help the homeless and low income seniors.

“Home marks a beginning, the beginning of our narrative — the place and time where our stories commence. It is the fount of adventure, dreams and, tragically, too many times, heartache and pain, often more than we can grasp or fathom.” William Marsh
