Just a note to say that I feel very lucky. Yesterday I was able to go to the Opening Reception of an art exhibit called "word-art 2007" at The Canton Artists' Guild (CT). There, I met Carla Kurt who has a painting in the show. You can see it here on her blog -although we all agreed it is even more striking in person! I met Karen Jasper who wrote the poem that inspired Carla's painting, and Karen's friend Janet Beattie. So much fun! This seemed to me to be a very well attended event, and a great show combining words and art. Some of the art has words IN it as part of the piece, and others were inspired by a piece of writing. This was only the 2nd time I had been to the Gallery on the Green in Canton, CT. While there I also ran into Bill Godfrey, a friend from years ago when I belonged to the the Farmington Art Guild . . . so fun to see him again! Go see the word-art show if you live nearby or at least take a look at Carla's painting - the poem Karen wrote is there too. Thank you Carla, for introducing me to this wonderful art community so close to home!
