Sawyer Yards presents The Alchemy of Memory: Echoes Across Time, an exhibition of artworks by Spring Street Studios artists and local Houston artists, curated by artist and curator Gabriela Magana. Magana is a founding member of LAWAH (Latin American Women Artists of Houston) and currently also serves as the Special Projects Coordinator for ALMAAHH (Advocates of a Latino Museum of Cultural and Visual Arts & Archive Complex in Houston, Harris County). The exhibition is on view on the ground floor of Spring Street Studios. Magana writes: 

"Delve into the world of memory through an exploration of different perspectives that emerge and transform across the passage of time. Artists reimagine new worlds born from the fragments of the past, bending reality into playful and surreal manifestations that challenge conventional thought. Themes of trauma and recovery ripple through the narratives, as artists strive to break cycles and find themselves amidst layers of memory. Explore the world of dreams, where the subconscious intertwines with conscious reality, revealing hidden truths and unlocking the mysteries of the mind. Join us in this exploration of the power of memory where each artwork serves as a portal to the realms of human experience."
