November 2008

The Work of Ken Ragsdale Opening: November 7.

“The intertwining of our memories and the imagination is the essence of art. We allow ourselves to take in the world and interpret it, thus giving birth to unique perspectives. Ragsdale creates freshness to vision, like a childhood memory, we are transported back to a time and a space that has both the sensations of real and surreal.”

— Katherine Wright, PhotoCenter Director
