Susan Stewart’s definition of a souvenir from her 1984 book On Longing serves as a pivotal influence for the nuance of memory, site and material throughout my studio practice. Sculptures are souvenirs in this body of work, living as objects of memory from physical experience, and are removed from their natural location, sitting patiently still on our kitchen windowsills.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
