Artists explore the concept of that which endures: either in relation to the span of space or time that remains, or the surviving trace that prevails.  Artists consider the emotional and psychological side of memory, recollections and flashes of understanding. In the work submitted, artists look to the future, the myriad of experiences and knowledge yet to be learned as well as what to hand down in legacy.

Dorothy Bury Shaw has her newly completed, first collage on display at this exhibition.
