Artist Reception: Friday, February 8, 7-9pm
If your childhood home could hear you, what would you say? It might have been an apartment in the big city, a farm down a country road, or a rambling house with many kids & pets – there’s a place from your past that will stay with you forever.
Home is a group show where artists were asked to create a piece that salutes their childhood home or memory of living there. If only walls could talk.
A portion of proceeds will be given to Habitat for Humanity.
I am pleased to be invited to participate in this group show!
About my piece: Chickens for me represent “home” because my mother has collected hens since I was a child. My childhood home remains filled to the brim with chickens of all shapes and sizes. Hens are very nurturing, guarding their chicks under their wings for protection. My dad raised chickens as a teenager and shares a love for the animal. The house in this image is loosely based on the one my mom grew up in. Chickens will always remind me of my parents and the nurturing home provided me.
