Rosemary Wilson Sloggatt presents a solo exhibition, GROWING UP, in the Gallery of the East Islip Public Library, November1–30, 2016. Artist’s Reception is Saturday, November 12, 1–4 p.m.

GROWING UP features nearly 40 new works, including paintings, prints and smallobjects based on personal family photographs from the artist’s childhood. Thework, layered with memory and age, reflects both the photographic processesavailable at the time and the subsequent aging of the photographs. The casualviewer may see merely depictions of Polaroid or Instamatic photographs. Onanother level, the photo-technical references are a filter for the artist’schildhood memories.
