Join us Friday July 17th from 7-10pm for the Opening Reception of "Lost & Tell" by Beth Hoeckel
Exhibition Runs: July 17th - August 4th
What makes something trash, and what makes our personal psyche believe it's worth holding on to?
'Lost & Tell' focuses around the sharing of found artifacts that once belonged to someone else, and quite possibly were once in an entirely different context. The life and death cycle of sentimentality plays an important role in the exhibition - what someone somewhere has deemed useless, someone else could hold very dear. Artifacts drifting in and out of other people's lives, and potentially connecting unknowing strangers. The exhibit showcases collages, mixed media pieces, and prints that all utilize the found object. A curated 'lost and found' in the form of a personal 'show and tell'.
