Root Division Presents: Rememory: New Work by Lindsay Stripling
Exhibition Dates: February 6th – May 4th, 2014
Artist Reception: Thursday, February 6th, 5:30 -7 pm
Free and Open to the Public

Root Division is thrilled to partner with our neighbors at ODC by curating the theater lobby with the work of our Studio Artists and Affiliates.  This season, we present the work of former Studio Artist, Lindsay Stripling, who studied photography at UCSC and painting at San Francisco Art Institute. 
Stripling examines the photograph as a ever deteriorating scrap of evidence, a fragmented placeholder for a story or ever evolving tale.  With both grandmothers having developed Alzheimer's and Dementia late in life,  she has been exploring the familial and societal importance of lore, myth and legend and their inherent need for repetition and tendency to evolve into new histories. What happens when those narratives begin to wear thin and disappear, how do we begin to reinvent and retell something we cannot really recall.

Root Division is a visual arts non-profit located in the Mission District of San Francisco. Root Division's mission is to improve appreciation and access to the visual arts by connecting personal inspiration and community participation. We provide subsidized studio space to working artists in exchange for their service in creating shared learning opportunities for the community. Artists develop creatively and professionally by teaching art to underserved youth, leading adult education classes, and producing exhibitions that showcase local emerging artwork. By combining multiple opportunities for creative exchange, Root Division cultivates an artistic ecosystem that enriches life throughout the Bay Area.
Root Division is supported in part by grants from the San Francisco Arts Commission: Cultural Equity Grants, Grants for the Arts: San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund, Walter and Elise Haas Fund, Drusie Davis Family Fund, Zellerbach Family Foundation, W A Gerbode Foundation, Fleishhacker Foundation, A Better Place Foundation, Art4Moore, and Bill Graham Memorial Fund.
