Close to Home is open October 24, 2014 through January 10, 2015.
Home is both the place you live and the place where you used to live. It is your family and your neighborhood and your city. It is a place of comfort and apprehension. You may look forward to going home all day long, or you haven't been there in years, and you have no plans to visit. Home is a complicated place.
The seven artists in Close to Home use photography to explore different notions about home as a physical place with deep emotional connections. In doing so, they show us an extraordinary range of feelings toward home: tenderness, anxiety, love, and heartache. Perhaps photography is the ideal medium to express these feelings about home because of its ability to depict complicated things, in the most straightforward way, like a family portrait.
