MEMENTO

Friday 02.01.13 through 02.28.13

So many of us have tucked away small objects of our affections . . . little mementos we cannot part with: a key from a beloved car, matchbooks from meeting houses, stones and shells from other places, even old clothes. Things build up. They fill drawers, and boxes, and more boxes.

Join us for this group show where artists created works of art based on personal mementos that have been carried with them over time. Themes of possession and dispossession are explored through a variety of mediums. Sentimental objects  previously kept in boxes and drawers are reexamined and reworked by the artist.

This exhibit will also feature a living story wall, a memento wall, a beehive of sorts, where visitors are encouraged to let go of their own tokens or small possessions –  be it something found on the way to the gallery, something from your pocket, or something from your past – which may be left with a note, short story or explanation for the next visitor to discover.
