Yesterday afternoon over 200 people attended the grand opening event and “launch” of Our Fragile Home at the Southern Vermont Art Center where it will be seen through July 15. What a lovely success…based on comments about the sensitivity, beauty, soulfulness of what people viewed. It was truly an artist’s reward for twenty years of imagining and four years of labor. One woman actually cried tears of joy.
From SVAC it travels to three other venues through 2014. This exhibit which exhorts us to take care, nurture and respect our fragile planet contains a message that has universal appeal. Based on the inspiration of the words space travelers use to describe their first view of the earth from outer space, it is a testament to a world view and understanding of how vulnerable we all are. We hope you are able to see it sometime in the next two years.
On Thursday night a private viewing and champagne party was held for all of our Kickstarter supporters who generously contributed to the beautiful catalog that accompanies the exhibition.
