10 months revealed in 10 days
In 10 days, Friday, October 1, the last 10 months of my creative focus will be unveiled at the opening of the p-i-e-c-e-d TOGETHER exhibit at Carthage artCentral.
It will be a bittersweet evening. I have been a little drifting this week, after delivering the 80+ pieces of art for installation. This was designed to be a two-person exhibit. I’ve missed my friend, Jo Mueller, every day since her passing this spring, but perhaps more so these past few days.
Like many who have lost loved ones, I reached for the phone, in the early morning hours to tell her the exhibit was complete, the last brushstroke made. I reached for my phone to tell her the work had been delivered.
But…I still see Jo in the concept of “p-i-e-c-e-d TOGETHER” a monthly conversation in color, motif and inspirational literature. I chuckle at the inside jokes of a few of the titles assigned to pieces. And I think she would be proud of the totality of the exhibit.
