Wow Moments Art Show: First Friday

February 7 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Wow Moments Art Show

Friday, February 7th, 2020
5 pm – 8 pm

As a painter, wow moments are naturally beautiful subjects waiting to be painted. Visual surprises are everywhere. Some are grand, majestic public displays while others are quiet and private. My immediate response could be a demand to anyone near by to “Look at that!” or a quiet tear.

I am thankful for these moments and I am incredibly proud to share them with you through my art.

The idea for this show came about after I was given Anne Lamott’s book “Help, Thanks, Wow.” In her book, she clarified these words as simple powerful prayers. The title set up the order. In my experience, however, Wow, Thanks, Help is a more accurate sequence.
I painted and explored emotions and learned that these positive words are circular in thought for me. Incredible wows lead to thanks. Thanks for a beautiful sight. Thanks for being able to be in the moment. Thanks for the experience of wow. Thanks leads to help. Help exploring an underlying emotion and, of course, identifying new wows!

Wow moments can be out loud declarations of delight, as with “Eiffel Tower at Night,” to more reflective moments of quiet awe, as with “Bringing Mulligan Home.” When painting “Savannah’s Exploration,” emotions came full circle as I watched a wow moment unfold in a loved one.

This exhibit is a wow moment for me. I am thankful to the North Museum for having me as a returning artist enabling me to share them with you.

Please stop by First Friday, Feb. 7. 5 – 8pm. FREE.
