Cairo, Illinois, Photographs and Vessels

Don’t miss your chance to see the exhibition in the University Gallery.  It will be showing until May 6th!  Gwen Walstrand, a photographer, and Sarah Perkins, a metalsmith/enamellist, have created works that are not collaborative, but are designed to be viewed together.  “In order to have an impact and a narrative that neither could possess on its own. (We) work in different media but with the same subject matter – the town of Cairo, Illinois. Cairo is a unique place with both rich and tragic histories, a visual showcase of all that is best and worst in our American history.” Walstrand and Perkins have stated.
