F.r.o.g.s. in Residence, part II

“Did I ever tell you my dream? No?”

This dream was so real I awoke as if it already existed. I founded a world renowned art center in an old Gothic-style church.

The main sanctuary housed exquisite rotating exhibitions based in community conversation. The chaplet to the side housed a permanent collection. Diverse people came to study and enjoy.

The offices and Sunday school rooms housed studios and classroom space. Resident artists and others taught and explored their own personal work. People came together from all over the world and enjoyed this sacred space.

This dream remained whispering within my sight as colorful smoke lingers within the dance of fireworks.

“Why don’t you just open your own gallery?” Victoria said with a curious, blunt smile

Once again I found myself in a position of “that is all it took.”

Welcome to this Crooked Little Flower!

A curatorial studio nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina opening in 2018 housed within Burnt Mountain Pottery studios.

#drawing: poetic art; line quality is created out of experience, and composition emerges as the woven words of a heart’s beat. #art #amwriting #amdrawing.

Driven by a desire to engage in the feast of the creative process, the communion of conversation, and the actions of love; #crookedlittleflower begins.
