Sunrise Civic Center Art gallery presents
The Memory Catcher, Artworks and Installation by Yochi Yakir-Avin, an American Israeli visual Artist, based in South Florida.
The exhibition explores the complexity and tangled fabric of ancestry and family relationships, through fragmented memory. Yakir-Avin stretches the line between figurative and conceptual and combines traditional techniques and new materials.
The artist lets her personal story filter into her work to become a source of her creative expression, and invites the viewers to interactively connect.
