First Friday: December 2, 5 - 9pm
Artist Reception: Saturday, December 17, 2-4PM
Algava's work is about layers of time and memory. As she works, she repeatedly returns to and processes the joy of living in the moment, recognizing and acknowledging her indebtedness to those who have supported and nurtured her, past and present. Her explorations are about "communicating the grief and difficulties of living a passionate life but always gleaning the kernel of joy, of sunshine, of magic in the moment that is Now". Though currently undergoing treatment for cancer, she felt strongly about her commitment to show her work. Family, friends, and the members of 3rd Street Gallery have rallied around her to curate and present her exhibition. Priscilla states "I am aware and dwell in possibility and optimism".
