Established Gallery is pleased to present One Day, I’ll Share by Hernease Davis. This exhibition will open on Saturday May 8th, from 2 - 8pm.
This exhibition shows expansions of two ongoing series of works, Bare With Me, Foundation and …new love.. Through the use of self-portrait photograms, cyanotypes, crochet and installation, Davis weaves her own self-care rituals into one another. Her work began as solitary moments where she could heal and foster connection with myself. It is her ongoing practice to continue wherever this exploration leads, and to create open spaces that may welcome others.
