ANNIE E. BROWN: IN MEMORY
Travelling exhibition of the Clay and Glass Gallery of Waterloo.

Curator Virginia Eichorn developed the concept of this exhibition while visiting a cemetery where she noticed a particular tombstone. She asked Karina Guévin, Laura Donefer, Paul Stankard, Catherine Vamvakas Lay and Tim Whiten to work on the subject of grief as lived and shown during the Victorian period. The result is a set of touching pieces that draw on memories and unveil our own emotions towards death and the loss of a loved one.
