First Friday Art Opening /// And So We Shift ///


Summary: A collection of small works based on the evolution of the individual from Derek and Ramona Muse Lambert.

We try to hold onto the basic skeleton of what makes us each our own, but outside elements, and internal changes force us to grow. And so we shift. Our ideals, goals and thoughts change as we grow. And so we shift. Our bodies and minds change as we grow, whether we like it or not. And so we shift.
