Soap Gallery show explores nostalgia

YOUNGSTOWN — An exhibition by Cleveland artist Byron Miller opens Friday at the Soap Gallery.

In “How We Used to Be,” Miller is exploring the interconnectedness of memory, realized and forgotten, and what nostalgia might mean to each of us.

The artist describes the exhibition as “A journey into nostalgia and how the customary nature of certain objects and visual stimulus play into our psyche. Furthermore, it captures how intertwined we are to one another through these things. Using images coiled in psychedelia, I am attempting to capture the initial spark in which these things became relevant in our lives.”

Miller is an editorial, portrait and commercial photographer whose work has been featured in such publications as Billboard, Alternative Press and Vice Magazine.

“How We Used to Be” will be on display through July at the Soap Gallery, 117 S. Champion St., Youngs-town, with an opening reception at 6 p.m. Friday. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, call 330-240-0723.
