Opening Reception with the Artist
Thursday, September 6, 6:00-8:00pm

In Testimony, artist Dina Schwarz Fisher explores questions of memory – what can be remembered, what can be reconstructed, what can't.  Necessarily, art is a matter of testimony in one way or another:  a public statement of a private dream. In this collection of images, Fisher gives voice to a few such dreams. They are based on photos and shadows of memory, and stories retold.  They also include a memorial to lost family – bubbes, zaydes, cousins – killed by Nazis and their collaborators.

Dina Schwarz Fisher studied art at Brown University and the Yale School of Art.  A graduate of UConn School of Law, she practiced law for twenty years.  Dina lives in Hartford, CT.
