Spring is here. I heard a few peepers last night, though tonight may be too cold again for them. I’m in my studio preparing work for upcoming exhibtions. I thought I’d share the information about one of them.
Breath of the Forest is a members exhibitions of the NH Chapter of the women’s Caucus for Art. I have been a member of this group since about 1995! It’s a part of a national organization to promote women in the arts that has been working since the 1970s. We get together to support and promote each other, to teach and to learn from each other, and to create opportunities to exhibit in all parts of New Hampshire.
The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts will be hosting our next show, Breath of the Forest. This exhibition was put together for 2020 and was supposed to have opened at the Audubon Center in Concord. Then the pandemic happened, and like so much else in our lives was postponed and then canceled. I’m happy to say that WCANH persevered and contacted the Rochester Museum of Fine Arts in Rochester, NH to arrange for the exhibition to be installed.
Here’s the theme and the inspiration for the show as written by the show organizers in WCA/NH:
We are revising the relationship between humans and nature at a time when perhaps reconnection is needed most. Seeking solace in our sacred spaces,
many choose the majesty of the forest – warm, protective canopies, or towering strengths of possibilities reaching into the sky – home to hundreds of minute neighborhoods of their own, all trying to do the same thing we’re doing now – live.
I will have a diptych installed at the show. It is titled Reflected Insight 1 and 11, that I created in 2021. It is oil paint with cold wax medium on Encausticbord, and each panel is 12 x 9 inches.
