February 19th through March 29, 2019: Laura Migliorino, photography. Laura says, “My work has a long history of capturing the relationship between people and the environments they live in. The intimate nature of housing, shelter, and living environment is so essential to how one is defined, that it cannot be separated.   The work explores the symbiotic and perplex relationship between people and their homes. This series ‘Absentia: Abandoned Past’ explores spaces in a state of abandonment or unexpected departure, creating a feeling of being animated and inhabited but absent at the same time.” Artist reception on February 23 from 2-4 pm.

There will also be an Ekphrastic Poetry call for entries inspired by 2 of the paintings in this exhibit. Please stay tuned for details.
