Taking a moment to reflect and feel gratitude for the amazing First Friday Art Reception that I was honored to participate in back in October. Thanks to the kindness and generosity of Ashland Property Management’s new office space and good friends Deanna Stollings and Josh Pauli, the show has been a lovely success. On the night of the reception more than 70 friends and arts supporters attended! Despite a dark and rainy evening, they made their way along the torchlit pathway to wine and tasty treats and spent time with the art inside.
Being asked questions about the process and the stories that accompany many pieces may have been my favorite part of the experience. Making art can be such a quiet endeavor, it’s both acknowledging and joyful to bring each piece of work out into the light and let them find their “voices.”
I am honored to report that several original works found new homes that night. If there is something here that catches your eye, send me a message and I’ll let you know if it’s still homeless. Six giclée archival reproductions of “Migration is Hope” are also still available.
