May begins in celebration of mothers and mothering and ends in honoring the memory of those who lost their lives in war. Most notably, Memorial Day was born out of the embers of the Civil War.  This year, across the country,  observances of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War are taking place.

Poem of Stone and Bone: Make Her of Mystery is a work of celebration and remembrance. My residency at the James W. Washington House and Studio has provided a foundation and font for work that draws upon these elements.  Mr. Washington’s studio and garden provide the perfect setting. I hope to see you there.
Best regards,
