Home > What You Make of It

The Cameron Gallery welcomes Charron Andrews for a solo exhibition titled What You Make of It. A self-described “shrinemaker,” Charron creates engaging heartfelt vignettes that reflect her memories, images, and feelings growing up in a big Catholic family in Detroit. Home, neighborhood, and family — especially girls and women from her early childhood — inspire, shape, and populate her intimate assemblage work.

A long-time friend and patron of the Scrap Exchange, Charron’s comments on found objects are a perfect match for the organization’s creative reuse mission: “In my shrines I use mostly things I’ve found in an alley, on the street, in my own trash, or at a thrift shop.  I like to think that all broken things can have a new life if given a chance. I am always so happy when something, the uglier the better, that I’ve been looking at in my box of stuff for years finally finds its way into just the right place in a piece.”

The exhibit will be on display from Friday May 19 — Saturday, June 10, 2017. An opening reception will be held on Friday, May 19, 2017, from 6-9 PM.  The evening’s festivities include light snacks and drinks, as well as free art making in the Make N Take Room.This event is free and the public is warmly welcomed.
