Beyond Words Art Exhibit in Toledo

 

I’m excited to announce that some of my artwork and poetry are being exhibited in an art show at the McMaster Center gallery of the downtown library in Toledo, OH from now through Sunday Nov. 2. There are over 200 entries by 72 artists.

The exhibit features paintings, poetry, short stories, mixed media, photography, sculpture, and even jewelry.  What makes this show unique is that it’s a collaboration, so each piece of art is paired with writing by a different artist.  In other words, one piece was inspired by or created in response to another.

At the opening reception last night, the master of ceremonies mentioned that this show is one of the only collaborative exhibits of its kind in the nation.  Ben Malczewki, one of the jurors for the art show, gave a statement about the exhibit.  “This exhibit wonderfully captures what diversity and voice and community means to art, and that together, we are more than we could be alone.”

I have four pieces of art and three poems in this exhibition.  The most exciting part for me was to see the artwork and writing paired with mine.  As an artist, you don’t always know the impression your work makes on another person.  It’s especially gratifying to see that response depicted through art.

If you’re in the area, you should come check it out!  And if you’re in the market for a new piece of art to decorate your home or office, you’ll find many of the pieces are for sale.
