Museum – 1017 Front Avenue Opening Reception ECHO: Reconstructing Experience by Sally Bradley ECHO: something that evokes memory; an effect that continues after the original cause has disappeared. This body of work is an investigation of memory and experience; the echo of memory and the lingering experience of landscape. Fragments of recollections reverberate, fade, and re-emerge through time as reconstructed memory-images. The familiar landscape is reinvented through the act of remembering. Glimpses of things barely registered spark a flash of recognition like a familiar chord. Images are the echo of collective experience. The Artbeat Fund at the Community Foundation of the Chattahoochee Valley, Inc. (Established in October 2012 to help support the organization and execution of the annual Artbeat event.)
