The Coburn Gallery has the honor of debuting a video installation work by Cleveland artists Honey Lazar and Lauren Voss entitled "The Year My Sisters Died " as part of the Interrupted art exhibition.
“This video is a visual poem about my grief as well as those times when life flattens us. Seasons changed, trees shed, rested, and predictably bloomed. Rain and snow fell. Mourning held a monotonous metronomic rhythm. Eventually, I accepted that my sisters were gone; that my sorrow would not end, but it was time to get up and leave the room” says Lazar.
The Coburn Gallery will host an opening reception on Thursday September 1 from 4:30pm-6:30pm. The reception is free and open to the public. Exhibition runs through September 25, 2016.
