transFORM Edge Banding Shipping Boxes are Upcycled by NRHS Art Students

Thanks to Felix Figueroa & the transFORM Shop for saving and collecting the edge banding boxes for Alexi Brock’s NRHS PAVE art sudents. With budget cuts, traditional canvanses are no longer available, so Alexi had the idea to repurpose these boxes to provide a painting surface for the students to work with. The creativity of these young men and women is expressed on the octagonal boxes and has transformed them into beautiful pieces of art.

Still Here: A Thought Provoking Book Reading

transFORM Gallery was happy to host a book reading and discussion, Still Here Thinking of You: A Second Chance with Our Mothers, with authors Susan Hodara, Lori Toppel, Vicki Addesso and Joan Potter on June 20th. It was compelling and moving to hear the authors read from their stories in the book. The conversation that followed was also interesting and enriching. It touched on our common feelings and experiences as well as unique situations and perspectives in our relationships with our mothers.

In conjunction with the book reading, “Moments of Being”, a photographic slideshow of mothers and daughters, was displayed at the gallery. The photos and smiles triggered our own happy recollections and warm feelings for our mothers as well. We invite you to see Moments of Being for yourself and submit your own photos of you and your mother to the collection.

Take a look at all the good fun and great people from the event, and scroll down to read more about the book and the authors.

About Still Here Thinking of You

Reflecting on their formative years and beyond, authors Vicki Addesso, Susan Hodara, Joan Potter, and Lori Toppel grapple with the circumstances that shaped their mothers’ lives, thus deepening their understanding of their relationships with their mothers and the love they shared. The book ultimately inspires women to reexamine the relationships they have or had with their mothers – and those they have with their daughters – and view them in a different and more accepting light.
