22 April 2016 - 23 May 2016
The waters of my home inspire me. I am constantly reading about The French Broad River or the creeks and streams that stretch themselves across the South East. Passages by Wilma Dykeman and Annie Dillard remind me that the forces of nature I encounter are miraculous and personal, that the quivering of leaves or the singing of a stream is the earth telling its secrets, begging of us our own secrets. I am moved deeply by the seemingly bottomless waters of the Ocean and falling rivers, moving forever downstream. My work seeks to explore these waters, divulging its secrets while comprehending and grasping its depths, currents, and its violent turbulence.
Opening Reception Friday 22 April 2016, 5 - 8 pm
