Tyanna J. Buie: Picking Favorites.  In this exhibition, as in most of her shows, Buie engages in an archaeological dig, of sorts – one of which she continues her digging and boring through bygone years in an ongoing attempt at re-glimpsing and re-experiencing what she can of a girlhood that was largely spent separated from her parents and other members of her family as she was moved into one foster home after another. “Picking Favorites” has taken the form of an installation where all the objects in the gallery – Buie’s large, palimpsest-like, monotypes, as well as curled, old, black and white photos and other artifacts from her past – are drenched with memories for her that are both sweet and heart-breaking. Exhibition runs April 25 through May 31, 2014.  Friday: 6 to 9pm, Saturday: 10am to 4pm
