Fort Worth Community Arts Center will present “Unnatural Totems” by Ed Barr. His father was diagnosed with cancer. He went to his hometown to help his father out around the house. It’s the house where he and his sisters grew up. He decided to clean out the storage shed while he was there. He found many things in the shed that dated back to his childhood. These objects provoked intense nostalgia, reminding him of events and rituals that helped bind his family together. Family events, road trip vacations, and a happy childhood are etched into his psyche. Their house and furnishings were modest but important and meaningful events took place in and around their home with these items.

“Unnatural Totems” is an attempt to combine his memories with the found objects and create a visual record of some joyful familial rituals. In some of the works, the totems are a reflection of the spirit of a time that coincided with these childhood memories.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through June 28.
