Just Resting Your Eyes is a site-specific exhibition exploring love, memory, and dreams

across three generations. Angela Guerra Walley’s multidisciplinary works are inspired

by her family folklore and examine societal expectations of women, particular after

marriage. The title references a phrase Guerra Walley’s father used throughout her

childhood and makes a connection between the many moments we all close our

eyes - to daydream, embrace, kiss, weep, sleep, dream, and die.

cactusBARN is an independent artist run exhibition space that is located in the King

William neighborhood. Established by Leigh Anne Lester and Jayne Lawrence in 2023.
