CREATURE, MAN and NATURE – The title for our upcoming exhibit. It surfaced from each of our areas of interest. They are timely subject matter. Carolyn observes the animal kingdom, Mary respects the land, and I honor the human body. Combined, we show a deep appreciation and concern for the natural world.
We’ve met regularly for some time, to organize this project. I include bits of some of these sessions, as they’ve occurred already.
We needed a clear title, and now with that – We officially launch our blog.
FORMAL exhibit and an INFORMAL blog
CREATURE • MAN • NATURE
works by Carolyn Lavender, Monica Aissa Martinez, and Mary Shindell.
You’ll hear from all three of us in this blog. The plan is to share photos of our individual progress and our meetings until we are complete with the entire process. The final installation will include video, one from each of us. So count on snippets of some of that too. We’re also thinking to invite in the occassional guest author. And we’ll post something we call a throw in.
Move over 21st century … we’re present. Though meetings always include digital equipment of some form or other…the sketchbook still presides, cause we’re visual artists.
Carolyn will draw (and maybe paint), I will paint (and maybe collage) and Mary will make sculpture (and maybe print) … maybe we’ll do a bit of all of it. Mesa is giving us plenty of space and freedom.
Stay with us, go to the home page, look around, get acquainted, and feel free to comment. You’re a part of it now.
…I’m done for a little while, chances are you’ll hear from Mary next.
