Branch Gallery is excited to announce its upcoming exhibition, “Family Album,” featuring work by local fiber artist Pat Ahern. “Family Album” will include work from Ahern’s ten-year collection of crocheted family portraits, along with the debut of several new portraits. Each piece draws likeness from the family photographs Ahern references, along with his personal memories of each person. The portraits range from small picture frame to life size, with each figure in a different pose. Ahern chooses to depict each person in a candid moment, much like what is seen in a family album, lending a timeless quality to the imagery.
