Memorialized Moments : capturing the soulful spirit of human nature
February 3rd - March 18th 2018
Artist Reception : Sunday February 4th, 2-5pm

Join us this Black History Month to celebrate the work of Dolores Stewart a prodigious artist whose sculptures and paintings are inspired by moments from childhood, family and everyday life situations. Her sculptures in particular evoke the stories from her past as well as drawing inspiration from the present day.

In considering Dolores’ sculptures of her personal observations and memories, we find that they also record a true dramatization of the American culture.
