My Father’s House Exhibition Reception and Reading

Wed. Feb 1, 2017 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Art Gallery, Greenspring Campus

Award-winning writer Jen Grow partnered with photographer Craig Lammes to create My Father’s House, a multimedia project that explores loss, identity, and perception. A series of haunting images in My Father’s House, are paired with insightful passages from Grow’s personal essay of the same name. Grow worked with Lammes to tie her words and his images together by creating mixed media backgrounds using watercolor, ink, acrylic, and encaustic painting that recall the devastating beauty of Grow’s father’s actual home after his death. The juxtaposition of words and images illuminates the emotional depth and negative space of the subject in ways that neither form can fully express separately.


Grow received a 2015 Rubys Award from the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance and the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation for this exhibition. She was also the winner of the 2016 Mary Sawyers Baker Prize and exhibited her work at the Baltimore Museum of Art.
