An Offering: La Ofrenda
October 15 – November 13
Green Gallery at The Scrap Exchange
Opening Reception on October 15, 6-9 pm
The Scrap Exchange wants you! We are inviting the public to contribute to our next Green Gallery exhibit titled "An Offering: La Ofrenda". In conjunction with Dia de Los Meurtos/Day of the Dead, you can celebrate a loved one, beloved pet, or ancestor who has passed away by creating a small shrine (la ofrenda) in their honor.
Shrines should be no larger than a shoebox (they can even be in a shoebox!) and can contain photos, objects representing favorite activities, favorite colors, or symbols of favorite foods of your beloved. Shrines can also include a written remembrance and the name of the person or beloved pet.
This show is not juried and is open to the public. Shrines are not required to be for sale. All ages and skill levels are welcome.
Shrines should be brought to the gallery and placed or hung between Monday, October 11 and Thursday, October 14, from 3 pm until store closing (5pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday; 6pm Thursday). If you would like to contribute a shrine but these hours are not convenient, please contact Retail Manager Julia Gartrell to see if you can to make alternate arrangements.
The opening reception will be held on Friday, October 15th. Feel free to come in costume! This exhibit will run from October 15 through November 13. For more information, call 919-688-6960.
