"Giving Voice" Gallery Opening Reception

I have two pieces in the "Giving Voice" show at the Gallery At 14 Maple in Morristown, NJ. The exhibit will run through March 1, 2013. The theme of the show is based on a poem about imagination. It is running in conjunction with North America's largest poetry event, The Dodge Poetry Festival; and it was curated by the New Jersey State Museum curator, Margaret O'Reilly.

Artwork:   Silent Revelation   Acrylics on canvas    24"x18"   2010

                 This is a work of art that came to me in a dream in the silence of the night. I saw it the way that it appears on the canvas with the white lines on the dark background and with the soft glow emanating from the box. The image came together out of the darkness giving me hope and the encouragement to continue imagining. I think the light in the picture will become anything that we can imagine it to be.

Artwork:   Home Sweet Imagination    Acrylics on canvas    24"x18"    2010
                 This painting represents that special weightless, floating, place at the core of my being where my creativity lives and has been nurtured throughout my life.  It’s a home that goes with me wherever I go through good times and dark times. It’s the place where I was brought up. It’s humorous and whimsical while being mysterious and unexpected.
