View the exhibition online.

In the mind of the owner, an object may hold a residual presence of the person, place, or event for which it is significant. Objects may linger because of their perceived usefulness or rarity. As a collage artist and family history enthusiast, Aaron Roe has amassed a collection of items he examines through photography. These objects have found their way to him through family members who know his interest in ancestry, antiques, and collage work. Some items find a way into artworks, and others form the clutter of sentimental debris and things that may one day be useful.

Bio:
Aaron Roe grew up in the small town of Godley, Texas. He and his family moved to Richardson a few years ago, and the opportunity arose for him to return to school to complete his degree. His artwork has appeared in exhibits and venues in the DFW area, including the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, Stage West, Grackle Art Gallery, and SP/N Gallery. Roe has received awards in the juried shows Preservation is the Art of the City and Art in the Metroplex. In recognition for his work in the medium of collage, Roe was included in the 2016 book The Art of Found Objects: Interviews with Texas Artists (Joe and Betty Moore Texas Art Series) by Robert Craig Bunch.
