The DEER/DEAR series

Mixed Media on Board
Each painting measures approximately 18″H x 12″W

2016 – 2017

ALL of my work is an encounter.

Visceral.

Intimate dialogues.

Calling out the  viewer’s capacity to listen/attend to nuance.
To experience the work one must have a real encounter with the offering.
My work is how a photograph of a beloved cannot compare
to the actual presence of a beloved.

X

My work denies the camera’s eye.

X

A viewer’s actual encounter with my work

is the dynamic LIVE performance.

I listen to my listening.
Listen. Listen. Listen wide open. 

Sacred listening.

Sacred/Sublime offerings.

15 September 2018                  St. Croix River                    Osceola, Wisconsin

X

Paddled the sacred waters  of the St. Croix River
for my almost 4 y/o darling buddy Leo
-his FIRST river adventure.
I brought my kayak paddle and sat on the actual stern of the canoe – gondola style!
Leo was seated in the center of the canoe in his “throne”
and his Mom ( my dear friend) seated at the bow!

X

X
X

Exhibition Co-Organized by: Kristen Dodge and Kate Gilmore

X
Opening:  Saturday, 28 January 2017

Event programming begins at 2pm

X

Opening Day Co-Organized by:

Lauren Barnes and Shanekia McIntosh

X

X
Exhibition Dates:

28 January  –  5 March 2017

X
X

Gallery hours:

Friday-Sunday, noon-6pm and by appointment.

X

THE GENESIS:

This exhibition was conceived in conversation between Kristen and Kate a few days after the U.S. Presidential Election. With the intention of providing a reason, space, and context for artists to respond to the current circumstance, they agreed to set a show in motion, and allow the call to take on a life of its own. Word spread between artists and within a short time, the number of participants rose from 50 to 150. The current list of participating artists is included below.

X

X
THE SHOUT OUT:

“If you choose to make a work that addresses things internal, or external, or some state in-between, that is up to you. Make what you need to make in whatever form, and at whatever pitch you choose.”

(Excerpt from the call to participate.)

X

If we stop to comprehend the “unrealistic” endeavors that we pursue, we would never do them. This show has been a leap of faith and a truly collaborative endeavor.

X

X

Lauren Barnes and Shanekia McIntosh are organizing the opening day of performances, talks, and events. Carrie Schneider is managing new media submissions. Courtney Childress, Sheree Hovespain, Eleanor King, Gina Magid, Carleen Sheehan, Elise Siegel, and Ana Wolovick are providing drop-off locations for participating artists. Lilah Friedland is managing the collection of works in collaboration with our staff. Many participating artists have personally shipped their work to the gallery and offered their time and resources.

X

X

A portion of all sales will be donated to the local factions of

Planned Parenthood and Black Lives Matter.

“I was contacted by Kristen and Kate within a week after the Presidential Election.
Artist Donna Dennis championed my art.

I am the ONLY artist outside of NYC to be in  POSTELECTION.”

“ARTISTS are HURRICANE LAMPS / PINE TREES / CRUCIBLES

of telling TRUTH;

naming BEAUTY;

envisioning FIELDS/BLOOMS/WILDERNESS of FREEDOM

and

the persevering upholders LOVELIGHTGRACE.

ARTISTS call out the “Better Angels in our Nature”.

ARTISTS are FREEDOM fighters.

It is remarkably imperative to march our lives

to the rhythm of FREEDOM + CREATIVITY

+ HONOR/ RESPECT FOR/TO ALL.

Oracles.
