art took over

Happy Place, Happy Space

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks of delightful art, spread over many spaces around the island.

Venue after venue, sculpture, painting, installations, murals, video installations have provoked & challenged the senses. Abandoning attempts to capture these experiences for organized record-keeping, I decided I would unfurl the present (borrowing the phrase from a discussion Carol Ann and I had some weeks ago).

” … even if I didnโ€™t record a memory for future reflection, I had those beautiful moments in an unfurling present”.

Carol Ann Siciliano, Fashioned for Joy

But I couldn’t resist with a few highlights.

Reading your Joyful Posts brings me to my happy place. I hope having them in one place makes it easier for you to find when you need a bit of happy therapy, too.

If you would like to join in Happy Place, Happy Space, ping back to this post and I will include you next week.

  1. I love the purple squigglies. What a great feature photo. Thank you also for mentioning my blog and for sharing our conversation about “unfurling the present.” I’m glad to be reminded! I can easily imagine you and Loving Husband taking in all the experiences of the wonderful show. And I’m grateful you grabbed a few photos for the rest of us too!

    1. Our conversations resonate with me through the week(s), Carol Ann – one of the reasons I love our WP community … I am challenged & inspired to look outside my little space.

    1. I’m so glad you noticed and enjoyed the titles of the works – a title can be an important part of the work … just like in poetry – it can be a critical element!
      Most welcome in this space, Natalie! and thank you for hosting our #weekendcoffeeshare
