It was such a pleasure to see and experience all of the work in the Spring exhibition. The first thing I noticed is the range of work and skill level within the show. Some you could tell were at the beginning of their journey in art making and were experimenting with their various media. Others took my breath away with their advanced skills in painting, sculpting and photographing. I loved that all were welcomed and celebrated within the gallery space and community.
The exhibition showed how there are many interpretations of spring. I saw landscapes and florals, of course, but there were also works about emerging from grief, the passing of time, feminism and cycles. I’m so impressed with these artists and how much they give to their craft.
Thank you again for having me!
