Opening Reception: December 9th, 5-8pm
This show will present a collection of images that define place. Show photos that exemplify the glory of space. Depict that special landscape, real or imaginary, interior or exterior. Capture from where you came or where you now call home. Show where you really live, physically or spiritually. What does it mean to be “from here”? What makes you feel like you belong?
Everybody is so busy rushing from place to place and we spend so much time in traffic looking at the cars around us or sneaking glances at our cell phones. We barely notice the landscape around us. The seasons are changing and we’re gravitating indoors. As the holidays approach, it’s time to reconnect with family and friends. This brings with it a nostalgia for hearth and home. What might you hope to preserve for future memories?
