SOHA GALLERY 2016 CALENDAR
AUGUST 19 - SEPTEMBER 2
Erica Popp "Family Heirlooms" - Photography & Ceramics
Opening Night: Friday, August 19, 6pm - 10pm
Join us for Erica Popp's MFA Exhibit titled, Family Heirlooms. This exhibit lovingly, captures the gentler side of life and history surrounding American family values. Erica has infused ceramics and photography into a storytelling capsule. Pointing focus onto her own ancestors and the life of an immigrant family.
"The work is an exploration of my family tree and stories of my ancestors. I've been preserving family photographs by scanning and digital restoration. I'm using these to create both hand-printed reproductions of the photographs for precious hand-bound albums, and for the ceramic plates, my attempt to create the family heirloom pieces that my family never had to pass down. My great-grandparents came here from Germany and Norway to own land and make a better life for themselves and their children in America. They didn't come with much, and as immigrant farmers, they never accumulated the type of wealth that enabled some American families to purchase precious objects to pass down to future generations, such as jewelry or fine china. These objects are something I can pass down to any future children or to my nephew. They tell the story of one branch of our family coming to America and fulfilling the American dream."

THERESA HOPKINS | RUST SWEAT & TEARS
Mixed media is the best way to describe Theresa Hopkins' ever changing body of work. Her training is heavy in drawing, printmaking and photography. She layers grime, paint and a heaping dose of urban photography to reflect her adoring view of St. Louis. Vintage vehicles and deteriorating urban landscapes are a common theme in her work. She has perfected the photo transfer process. While you can find these photos printed on thin wood panels, she feels her real work is weaving these images into her mixed media paintings. If you know her work, you know her father is a key element. His screaming face has become her signature. It's her perpetual memorial to her hero.
Theresa is the master framer for our artists. She is a practiced woodworker, a close friend and is part of the gallery's all female troop at SOHA. She, among other artists including her partner April Morrison, support and nurture our efforts to make SOHA Gallery the premier gallery for STL local artists.
We are excited to feature Theresa Hopkins’ solo exhibit titled, RUST SWEAT & TEARS.
