THE EXHIBITION

We’ve all heard that “home is where the heart is”, but what does that mean to you?  The Foundry Art Centre’s juried exhibition "Going Home" asks the artist to explore the question of what is meant by “home”.  Is it a place, a feeling, a person, a concept? Does it ground you or set you free? Is it where you begin, end, or reside? This all-media exhibition showcases the artwork of over 45 artists who share with us their version of home.
