Holding Pattern, a work in progress.

Holding Pattern is in the Strands exhibit in the Carnegie Gallery at our own award-winning  Columbus Metropolitan Library along with many fine works by the artists of Creative Arts of Women (CAW)

My work doesn’t often lend itself to themed exhibitions but I was drawn to create a piece for Strands in support of the Hair Theater Fund: http://www.hairtheater.net/fund/fund.html

For me, a strand is a thread of conversation. It is a woven pattern of memories. It is a wisp-thin filament that stitches together fragile moments. It is the last, tacit connection as seed falls from tree, leaving behind the stem, once nurturing and strong. Holding Pattern is a testament to the power of tacit connections and a witness for memories too often relegated to the back of the drawer.
