It is our individual and collective memories of life experiences that shape who we are and define our path. Focusing on the notion of a guiding inner compass, this installation of imagery and objects speaks to the metaphors of memory and direction. Using the camera, assemblage, and bookmaking, Vrba and Surratt present a show of storytelling that is evocative, sensitive, and feminine. October 11 – December 20 Receptions: Thurs. Oct 17; 6–8pm & Sat. Nov. 16; 5–7pm Horse & Buggy Press and Friends https://www.horseandbuggypress.com/news-events-1 1116…
