|ECSTATIC SUPPORTER CHIBOOGAMOO. Here we are! Ta dah! My work, entitled, "We are Not Alone," one of many in the series of the "Cosmos of Hallelujah," celebrating my life's story in a symbolic array of characters.(photo by another ecstatic husband of WCAGA Member)|
On September 10, 2015, The Womens Caucus for Arts Georgia (WCAGA) opened an exhibit of their work--"MARK"--at Lyndon House Arts Center as part of its 40th year celebration. We WCAGA members were all surprised by the beauty of this exhibit hosting one "MARK" work of close to forty different women artists. How could so many diverse images come together in a coherent and inspirational show?
There are many people to thank for the success of this exhibit, beginning with WCAGA board member, Barbara A. Rehg. For several years now, she has been committed to her vision vision women getting together to make their "MARKS." Many "drawing marathons" and other exhibits later, is this large one at the Lyndon House! Thank you Barb!
Also responsible for the success of this Lyndon House exhibit are Nancy Lukasiewicz, Didi Dumphey and Stacy Koffman, whose work made the "MARK" exhibit come to reality, as well as Georgia Strange, who juried the exhibit.Yay!
As a visionary artist, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to exhibit my work in such an elegant and welcoming environment. Each person makes individual "MARKS," and that is respected in this show! Yay for us all! Yay for creativity!
|HURRAY FOR OTHER LIKE-MINDED ARTISTS. I love it that Jes Gordon's "MARK" was next to mine. To learn more about Jes, check out my interview with her here, and her website here. (photo by Chiboogamoo)|

Thanks so much for reading my blog post Sabra and writing this comment. I feel so fortunate that I'm managing this auto-immune disease. Alopecia is mysterious and doctors don't know what to do about it. Let's all focus on living our lives in deep and meaningful ways with joy, love, and forgiveness.Delete
This made me happy!ReplyDelete
