I enjoy participating in themed exhibits when the theme relates to my work; it's fun to see the variety of viewpoints on the subject and how my entry contributes. Curators Megan Somerville-Loomis and Ted Loomis of ArtEAST have chosen one of my paintings along with 27 others for an exhibit that explores clouds-- "Mirroring our own brief journeys, clouds’ temporal existence reflects our dreams and drives our imagination."
I helped the curators to install the artworks in Blakely Hall, community center of the Issaquah Highlands, about 30 minutes east of Seattle. With diversity in size, media and mood, it was a challenge, but the final arrangement complements the works. There will be a reception with live music, a poetry reading based on the paintings, and a talk on creativity by Obadinah Heavner on Saturday, January 23, from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibit will be up until March 14. For more information, go to ArtEAST.
