A tradition is a custom passed down from generation to generation.  We have cultural traditions and family traditions, and each contributes to a sense of practice and belonging.  In the Southern US we have the traditions of Sunday suppers created from recipe cards handed down through the years.  We sit on the porch and watch the sunset on a warm and humid evening.  We comb the beaches looking for seashells and soak-in the sun while kayaking down the meandering marsh estuaries.  In celebration of this, Wells gallery brings you Southern Traditions, a group show.  Each artist has created works exploring their personal family customs and the rituals we all share. 


Many of our beloved traditions have been disrupted by recent events.  Although it is a tough time, we know it will eventually pass, and we will be back to enjoying our traditions once again.  Until then, we will honor those traditions in our thoughts and through art.  We invite you to enjoy the new works and find a piece that reflects a beloved tradition you hold dear.
