December 13, Campfire Gallery presents VESTIGES featuring new work by Cindy Steiler and Amber Jean Young. Using materials and techniques that have been handed down over many generations, Steiler and Young combine photographic images with traditional textile arts that shadows the past and manifests a new narrative. Their process is recognition, not only of what is remembered, but also of what is forgotten. This allows the artists to build upon history rather than simply restore the past, recreating it in their own current interpretation. Steiler and Young share an interest both in subject matter and materials that reference ￼the past and the value we place on examining them in the context of our current lives.
The gallery hosts an opening reception Saturday, December 13, 7-10 pm
