July 5 to September 7, 2018
Artists were invited to explore and celebrate their ancestry in this wonderful exhibit focused on family and heritage. Participants were invited to create an image that shares your ancestors and their lives, their accomplishments, or their influence on your own art. Along with the works they entered for this exhibit they could also include a family heirloom, old family photos, or artwork or craftwork created by an ancestor that was exhibited alongside their entered works. This combination of contemporary art and ancestral creations sparked an interesting dialogue about the influences of our ancestors on our creative lives. Some of their stories, shared during a salon-style opening, are included in the slide show.
