DESCRIPTION

Our Fall 2014 exhibition will examine the unique ways that artists portray family, through drawings, paintings, sculptures, textiles, digital media, and photographs. Each of the 10-12 exhibiting artists explores the often deeply personal nature of their own sibling, parent-child, partner, and chosen family relationships, inviting all of us to reflect on our own familial ties.
