Transcendent Art Show: visions of mental illness & mental health, Petersham Town Hall, Petersham, MA. Opening Reception, September 19, 6 - 8 pm.
This is an art show of student and professional artist, all to do with mental illness and mental health. It was put together by high school student MacKenzie Coffman and half of the proceeds of sales will go to Abby's House in Worcester, about shelter, housing, and advocacy for women.
I have my very large "Healing What Was Done to Us," "Speak" (above) with the poem from my book "Wild Geese" hung beside it, "Blood Bath" with its accompanying poem "Blood Bath" from my book, "Vision," and "River Mother, Heath Road."
I will do a short performance piece that introduces my Blooming work before I read the poem from my book "I'll Keep Going."
I will also have my book for sale.
If you can, it should be an incredible event. Just amazing work from what I saw when I dropped off!
As I write, I discover more and more who I am, and, as I do so, I share with you, in case anything I write may resonate with, help, or guide you.
