Silver Eye is proud to present In dreams I walk with you, featuring photographs inspired directly by the themes of six recent virtual workshops. All were led by artists nationally known for their original uses of photography as an expressive medium. This exhibition by teaching artists and participants meditates on artistic process and how mutual support can empower personal expression.

All six workshops dealt significantly with reclaiming one's sense of self through creativity amid the uncontrollable circumstances of our pandemic era. In this time of increased isolation and self-reflection, Hannah Altman, Nakeya Brown, Hernease Davis, Dylan Hausthor, Laura Larson, and Patricia Voulgaris came together with their workshop participants in a spirit of creative exploration and honest discourse to collectively imagine new possibilities for photography.

This ethos and mutual exchange of ideas is at the heart of The Lab @ Silver Eye, where artists of all experiences can further their unique creative visions. This exhibition celebrates the power of connection and community during transformative and uncertain times.
