It’s Official–Incantation Bowls Exhibit

twins detail2Now that the contract is in hand, I can announce that Reassurances; Incantation Bowls, Reimagined will have its debut gallery exhibition at  Lachaise Gallery, Cedar Crest College, Allentown, PA, September 12-October 17, 2014, with a closing reception and artists’ talk on October 16, 2014.  There will be a workshop, as well (more info TBA).  The show will include other work by Tiffany Besonen.  Tiffany is making great progress on the bowls, and I encourage you to follow her blog, here. Today’s post has to do with the image from the bowl pictured here, and with the way crows are manifesting in this project.

The creation of her images has added a whole new dimension to the poems I’ve written.  Conversations have started  between words and images that we created, yet we are somehow not part of these conversations.  They take on a life of their own, and we are merely observers. That is the beauty of collaboration, and of the mixing of media.

The culmination of this long project is both exciting and terrifying to imagine.  Will people get it?  Will the project spark the kinds of thought processes about fears and protection and history and gender roles (and so many other ideas) in viewers as it has in us? Time will tell, I guess.  We hope that the exhibit will travel, and that a new kind of work will begin for us–a new dialogue, not just between the two of us, as it has been throughout this process,  but with viewers and listeners, questioners and sharers. We look forward to that broader conversation.
