Sunshine and warmer weather have arrived in New Orleans and it feels like spring, my favorite season. I am fascinated by Lent, spring, and Easter. To me the upcoming season represents a time of birth and collaboration to create new beginnings.
My piece shown above is called "Collaboration". It is an image of my sisters working on a puzzle together over the Christmas/New Year Holiday. It reminds me of how my German professor at Xavier University, Dr. Margaret Eskew, told our class that collaboration and working together are important to succeeding in life.
Here are some quotes about collaboration:
"No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it." ~ H.E. Luccock
"Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean." ~ Ryunosuke Satoro
"It is the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too); those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed." ~ Charles Darwin
I will participate in this group show in New Orleans Saturday, March 15th at Mid-city Theater. It will be free and open to the public.
I am happy to be receiving a distinguished service award at the New Orleans Chapter of the National Conference of Artist's annual symposium on March 29th. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to purchase tickets to the symposium and/or party the night before.
