October 7 – October 30, 2021
Opening Reception: First Thursday, October 7, 5-8pm
During the pandemic I’ve spent an abundance of time with my immediate family and, other than Zoom and phone calls, I’ve been removed from my extended family. There have been wonderful moments of closeness, such as watching my child’s development, that I wouldn’t have had without staying at home; but I’ve also missed out on major life events, such as the last moments of my grandfather’s life. These experiences of the pandemic in regards to family life aren’t unique, so I hope to connect with others through this subject matter in my art. The pieces chosen for this show are vignettes of moments that highlight the daily joys and stress of togetherness as well as the struggles of apartness during various stages of quarantine.
