Merill Comeau Explores Community and Identity Through Textile Creations

July 9⎻August 3, 2018

Reception: Thursday, July 12, 6:00 p. m.⎻8:00 p. m.

Artist Talk: Thursday, August 2, 6:00 p. m.⎻8:00 p. m.

In therapy, the term "family of origin" refers to the caretakers and siblings you grow up with, your first ever social group. In Merill Comeau's upcoming show at the Chandler Gallery, the term, like the material she works with, is deconstructed and reimagined. Each piece is a representation of different familial experiences, and how those experiences intersect with one's sense of identity and community.
