The Catherine G. Murphy Gallery at St. Catherine University presents Form & Memory by Jody Isaacson. The exhibition runs November 2–December 18, and is free and open to the public.

Artist Jody Isaacson installs more than 160 hand dipped life pendulums from the gallery ceiling. Each wax form represents a person from Isaacson’s life who has passed away. One dip for each year of an individual life accumulates into a candle pendulum that represents the time spent to remember each individual. Each relationship builds the installation, the artist’s life history currently suspended in the gallery.

An Artist Reception will be held Saturday, November 7, 6–8 p.m. The reception includes a talk by Jody Isaacson at 7 p.m. Isaacson also discovered the late David Bryd. An exhibition of his work, War is Always With Us runs concurrently with Form & Memory.

Gallery hours:

Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–8 p.m.; Saturday–Sunday, noon–6 p.m.
