Truman Capote once wrote: â€œI am always drawn back to places where I have lived, the houses and their neighborhoods.â€ The works of the nine artists in the exhibition HOME
are a testament to the validity of Capote’s statement. We all carry with us our own associations and images of â€œhome.â€ â€œHomeâ€ may describe and entire country, a familiar or strange neighborhood, styles of architecture and notions of dÃ©cor. It is a space created according to individual ideas of comfort and security, yet perhaps more importantly, it is constructed and altered by personal history, social relationships and memory. Like Dorothy in â€œThe Wizard of Oz,â€ we know that â€œthere is no place like homeâ€ and we long to get back there.
The nine photographers featured in the exhibit are:
Tracey Baran, Gary Burnley, Reuben Cox, Marcia Due, James Kendi’s, Darin Mickey, Christine Osinski, Jennifer Williams, Bryan Zimmerman
