"Familiar Collections" - Erika Ritzel & Laura Andrews at RCTC!

This is the last week to see Erika Ritzel and my show "Familiar Collections" at RCTC in Rochester, MN.  This has been a labor of love for both of us, mining not only the people who are important to us, but also the objects that represent or remain after those people have passed on. 

Here are a few images and some links to video from the show.  It was a delight to be able to display this work in such a beautiful space and really see it come to a new level of fruition.  Thanks to Crist Dahl for making this happen!  We will be working toward another iteration of this collaboration in 2019 at the Phipps in Hudson, WI - so stay tuned.
