Shadows and Dolls is an exhibition that is split into two separate themes which have a common connection the concept of time and beauty.


Shadows

Time is an illusion ( Albert Einstein )

The shadows of the past and traces of lives in places where they left their mark a person who lives in the ruins of an abandoned house where the memories of the people who lived there before are still alive their ghosts leaving a charm and beauty that transcends time.


Dolls

Keep young and beautiful (Al Dublin & Harry Warren) All the girls like to play with dolls they like designer clothes have nice hair big eyes and a catwalk model figure as the girls grow older they continue to play with dolls only this time the doll is themselves the passage of time may be unkind to some imposing a false sense of security turning the girls into ghosts of themselves.


Opening Reception: Friday 10th July 7 pm - 9 pm

With music by the Jingo Box Band featuring guest vocalist Emme Nicolai
