In The Ghost of Landscape and Memory, Byron draws from memory and imagination to tell personal stories of his time teaching and living in Morocco. The pieces are coming of age works and include themes of spirituality, cultural relativism, and adventure. His pieces are representational but are not academic. The best work is authentic, psychologically resonant, and emotionally complex.
The Ghost of Landscape and Memory will be on display in the Osborne Family Gallery inside Criss Library from August 22nd to November 7th, 2022. The Osborne Family Gallery is open during the same hours that Criss Library is open. Join us on Friday, September 9th from 4:00pm to 6:00pm in the Osborne Family Gallery for an opening reception with the artist Byron!
