Exhibit runs from Sep 26 - Nov 7 Art by Stephanie Swift ARTIST STATEMENT I have always loved old buildings and signs and saw that many of the signs I loved were disappearing. I wanted to capture them before they were gone. So I started taking photos of them, and rather than hide the flaws and age in the signs and buildings, I try to celebrate the flaws when I digitally illustrate them. It didn’t take long for me to realize, these were more than just signs I thought were beautiful. Everyone has their own story about these places. And I have heard some great ones. I have heard about many nights at Bill and Nada’s, or how they went to Snelgrove’s, when they were kids, and not to mention the MANY, MANY misadventures at Coachman’s and Bar-X. This is my little way of trying to keep the city from becoming just another place, and keeping it special.
