“The memories of yesterday and today form the foundation of who we are and what we will be. Some memories, like those times of love or love lost, stay with us while others easily fade into obscurity. These memories, the ones we choose to carry with us, become our stories of past experiences. They are the narrative of our being. Never Forever, features the work of Gina M. Contreras and Karen Thomas, two artists engaged in the complexities of human experience.”
