VOL 10

August 25, 2017
@ Gallery One Visual Arts Center

"Home" - what does it mean to you? Is it a physical space or spiritual place? Is it a house, a shared apartment, an art studio or a garden spot? Is it the place where you are or a place where you long to be? Home is unique to each of us, but we all want a place to call "Home." 

Our Pecha Kucha presenters will share their perspective on the theme of Home in the 20 images x 20 seconds format.

Our doors and bar will open at 6pm, and our event will start at 7pm.  Come early to find a seat, enjoy a beverage and have a conversation.
