Home, it is at once a noun and an adverb — physically and metaphorically it is a dwelling.
We all have a place we call home. Home is where we are from or where we go to – a place we run from or run to. It can be a harbor or a battlefield. It holds space for memory, family, artifact, evidence – our collective cultural baggage. Home Bound, curated by Carol Panaro-Smith, explores the depth of our relationship with home.
Maya Angelou writes in her book, Letter to My Daughter “…I believe that one carries the shadows, the dreams, the fears and dragons of home under one’s skin, at the extreme corners of one’s eyes and possibly in the gristle of the earlobe. “
In this exhibition, a selected group of artists look at home and all the ghosts of memory that inhabit it.

These artists use the photographic medium to reveal their personal perspectives on home. Home is inextricably connected to family and memory, but can also relate to loss or appreciation.
