Lynne Breitfeller’s “After the Fire: Water Damage” delves into themes of loss, resilience, and family archives. Her series documents the aftermath of water damage on her personal archive, resulting in haunting yet poignant works of art.

Breitfeller states, this series forced her to “consider ideas of transience and new incarnations,” as well as “the impermanence of possessions, and memory.”

Come on Saturday, June 22 at 6 p.m. for a celebration of the artists showcased in this exhibition.

Suzanne Theodora White, “Dry Stone No Sound of Water”: Now – Sept. 1, Griffin Atelier Gallery

Suzanne Theodora White’s “Dry Stone No Sound of Water” is a deeply layered, textured look at how we see the landscape. Her constructions beg us to look deeper at local fauna, creating surrealist and beautiful compositions of plant life. Her still life images combine pieces of nature and photography to create new landscapes for us to transit.

Come on Saturday, June 22 at 6 p.m. for a celebration of the artists showcased in this exhibition.
