HISTORIA ATLANTICA: RELIQUARIES & ASSEMBLAGES
In The Craig Case Galleries
Opening Wednesday, January 31, 7-9pm
“Fishermen on the East Coast of Canada inspired my work. Because I wanted to pay homage to them, using hand made artifacts from the fishing industry, I titled several pieces under the umbrella of Historia Atlantica. Each piece has a title from a vessel on the South Shore of NS tellingly indicating the different frames of mind of each captain.
I decided to do a series …transforming vintage medicine cabinets – as discrete museums. These cabinets serve as cautionary environmental tales or parables if you will.” – Su Rogers
