Vadis, her Grandmother, and Mother at First Fridays

Freshly installed and ready to be admired, come in to check out the newest work by Vadis Turner. "Over time ancestral forms of crafts appreciate in value, maturing into heirlooms that function as cultural currency and which later, as artifacts, serve as a documentation of the artist and her origins." Turner has used the traditional ideas of what a Dowry used to be, and adapted them to the modern times. Using found jewelry, vintage clothing, ribbon, and mixed media, Turner has made her own "Dowry."
