Do you find that one good thing often leads to another?
Last month during the 'Shared Terrain' exhibit with poet Toni Wynn and printmaker Liz Boyle we were each asked by Selden Gallery to create a commemorative piece for Women's History Month.
My idea was an afternoon of performance art with 12 women...my SWAN Day event posted here March 28.
That led to this evenings fire at my studio/home attended by 9 artists...a marvelous sharing of dreams...
Here's the flyer I sent out...we'll gather again May 11.
INSPIRED BY THE THEME OF THIS YEAR’S WOMEN’S HISTORY PROJECT FOCUS ‘WOMEN TAKING THE LEAD TO SAVE THE PLANET’ I INVITE YOU TO:
JOIN ME ON APRIL 13 FROM 6:30-8:30 TO IGNITE THE CREATIVE FIRE IN YOUR BELLY… COME AND SIT NEAR THE FIRE AND/OR WALK THE EARTH CALENDAR WHEEL.
TAKE THIS TIME TO RESPECT WHAT YOU WANT, TO LOOK AT WHERE YOU’RE GOING AND TO IMAGINE HOW YOU INTEND TO MOVE FORWARD.
CONSIDER THESE TWO HOURS AS YOUR TIME TO WATCH THE FLAMES DANCE, WARM YOUR HEART AND LOVE THE MANY WAYS IN WHICH YOU ARE INSPIRED TO ADD YOUR VOICE TO THE WORLD.
THIS IS NOT A GROUP THAT IS ASKING ANYTHING OF YOU. THIS EVENING, AND THE ONCE A MONTH FIRES THAT WILL FOLLOW, ARE DESIGNED TO BE A BREAK, A REPRIEVE, A TIME OUT, A GENTLE SOOTHING SPACE FOR YOU TO WATCH THE FLAMES DANCE AND TO LISTEN TO THE SHARED DREAMS OF WHAT THE WORLD WE LOVE SO MUCH CAN TRULY BE.
