The exhibition consists of a series of installations and sculptures that speak to memory, identity and loss. Using figurative realism and abstraction, I am capturing snapshots of moments with psychological charge and dreamlike narratives. This work is a result of the process of trying to find joy and succumbing to sorrow in the present moment, processing memory and spirituality in the context of bereavement, and the engagement with the physicality of clay as a mode of processing.
Not ready to say goodbye to festival season? Well, we’re not done yet. Grab your friends and family and join your neighbors, as we celebrate the charm that makes Charm City so unique. Residents of all ages are invited to the lawn of War Memorial Plaza for an eclectic blend of art, entertainment, and local eats. Several garages and parking lots onsite will be available and designated for this event. Pricing will vary.
