Last weekend I hosted a pop up gallery at The Yards, located in the Rochester Public Market above Cure and Flour City Bread. It was a chance for me to bring people together, show my work in person, and have a little fun celebrating my birthday. Despite the 6-10″ of snow that fell the night before, it was a success and I’m so grateful to everyone who came out and joined me.
I discovered the Yards by first searching for locations at some of my favorite Rochester restaurants. I thought that I would work within the limitations of a private dining room, but with the Yards I could actually have a gallery set up because that’s exactly what the space is for.
A line of heirloom boxes debuted at the pop up and I’m excited to share them with you here too. Made by the wonderful people behind H.H. Boogie, they are not only handcrafted in Ohio but they are individually made with great thought and care. I fell in love with them, and since they are best experienced in person it was a perfect time to invite everyone to take a look. The story they tell is not one sided. It weaves the textures of memory together and allows it to be shared, experienced and remembered in a way that a standard album does not allow.
So take a look at the gallery set up and you are also invited to SHOP the pop up gallery here.
