The Durham Art Guild presents “Sweeping the Graves,” featuring photography and photography-based installation works by DAG member artist Dawn Surratt.
The yearly April tradition of honoring ancestors in China is known as the Qingming or Ching Ming festival. Families sweep tombs, pray and make offerings to their deceased loved ones. This body of work combines photography and photography based installations in commemoration of the many souls this artist encountered after more than twenty years working as a hospice social worker.
SunTrust Gallery will be showcasing a congruent installation-based exhibition by DAG member artist Kelly Johnston during “Sweeping the Graves.”
October 19 – December 8
Opening Reception: October 19th from 6-8 pm
120 Morris St., Durham
