CCC to display exhibit on childhood memories
The Chehalem Cultural Center will display an exhibit titled "Little Small" by artist Linden Eller from April 2 through June 1 in the Central Gallery.
During a year in Japan, Eller developed a curiosity of "childhood amnesia" or why an adult's first memory isn't until age 3 or 4. She created a collage project of drawings by children ages 2-6 to reflect "what is lost, kept, altered and shared during the first years of life." The collection was originally on display in Japan.
An artist's reception will be from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on April 5 at the center.
