This afternoon I had the pleasure of photographing a dear friend's pop up wedding in a beautifully lush garden off the beaten path of a busy trail. The lily pads were preparing to catch the rain and the winds were rapidly picking up...passion in the air. Surrounded by the poetry of Walt Whitman, it was the perfect spot for nuptials.
A year ago, while in the throws of the pandemic, I was looking to fill my creative bucket when I happened upon an art opportunity on an Art & Opportunities page. It was a call to participate in game of telephone between artists.
Much to my delight I was sent a poem, I See A Darkness, to read and create a visual response. When I was given the poem, I was not given the authors name, which I now know is Calyn Kelly from Eugene Oregon. My artwork would then be sent on to an artist for creative interpretation and so on...
Today, April 10th, the Telephone exhibition is revealed! 900 artists, 493 cities and 72 countries! I am so thrilled to have been a part of this palatial undertaking! Visit the site and enjoy the cacophony of music, poetry, art and dance, creative exuberance that is the result of the Telephone Game!
