Telling Tales Gallery

These are the images of the pieces from my Master of Arts Thesis Show at Edinboro University in 2006. As the pieces themselves represented a progression through time of various real-life events, the display of the work followed that same progression. The images here are displayed in that same order. Clicking on each image with bring up that piece’s individual page, where you can view it full-sized, along with further information about each piece.

The Artist Statement for the show is here
