Be Careful What You Wish For...Sometimes You Get It!!
About a year ago the manager of the Crossnore Fine Arts Gallery approached me about doing a solo exhibition. "Yes!" I shouted, before responding firmly,"No." "I'd love to,"I amended quickly, and then stuttered, "but...but...but." "But what?" Heidi asked. "You'll do great." Deal closed.
What a loving show of confidence this woman displayed. I have cherished every minute of preparation: research, painting, experimenting; and if for some reason the exhibit were never to take place I have still had the most adventurous year of work from which I have learned an enormous amount. (Like never turn down a challenge.)
Here is my official invite to you:
If you are in this neck of the woods, please join us. I think you will find the exhibit a little different from some because, well, you know: I like words almost as much as I love color. So I have created some narratives to accompany the journey towards sanctuary and a few interactive, non-2D pieces.
You may find an expression that mirrors your own definition of sanctuary. And if not, at least you'll have an excuse to go out to dinner after a glass of wine with me and my friends.
Thanks for your continuing support,
