Note: As we have rescheduled Bloom 12 in light of our temporary gallery closure, this exhibition has been cancelled.

Meet-the-Artists Reception: Saturday, May 16, 1-3 pm

For this exhibition, we invited artists to send us art that explores the many facets of memory: the internal experience of images and emotion or the external expressions of personal or cultural memory – documents, photographs, and artifacts.  They were asked to explore memories of place and home, of journeys taken, family memories and family histories, the memories that make us who we are, or cultural and folk memories. Tell us a story and take us on a trip down memory lane.

Vita was a member of the Bloomsbury Group and is known as the inspiration for Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando: A Biography.

The Meet-the-Artists Reception will feature live music by Riverbend,  featuring Laurie Bryan, Candy Little and John Roebuck. Their unique blend of voices and musical styles creates rich harmonies and uplifting sounds.
