Archived Memories, a solo exhibition with Kate Fauvell, in the Rush Arts Gallery Project Space September 8th – 23rd 2016. There will be an opening Reception Thursday September 8th 6-8pm and an artist talk on Saturday Sept 17th from 4-6pm. Rush Arts Gallery is open Wednesday- Saturday 12-6pm.
This exhibition Archived Memories includes large scale interior pieces using collage, paint, and found objects that echo memories of place, home, and childhood. Kate Fauvell is nostalgic for the Queens home of her grandparents and relishes in the memories held within relatable stories told in the kitchen, or the sites of grandma’s apron.
The letter “Dear Jim….” Is a heartfelt love note that was carried with the recipient (the artist’s grandfather) for years that shows the love that built the home over a 45+ year long marriage. A home fills with objects quickly and to the artist “these objects had been through so much that the objects themselves had become a part of my family, they showed the passing of time and had became familiar symbols for home. The objects bared stories.”
These family stories of place time and what creates a home are what makes Archived Memories. Come walk into the memories of place to feel the warmth of home in the Rush Arts Gallery Project Space.
