“Rainbows After The Storm” was juried into the Midwest Seasons Exhibition at the Center For The Visual Arts in Wausau by judge Kitty Kingston. The exhibition is from Jan 6 – April 1, 2017. Opening Reception is Jan 13 from 5-7pm.
Statement from the Artist: “For over a year now I have been working on a series of works called “The Journey.” My “Ladders and Fences” works are a part of this series. And now windows and rainbow colors are appearing my work. I have to take this idea further before I call it a series but I have now done two pieces with these rainbow windows in them. What do I see – I see light coming through a church window and creating rainbows all around the room. I see a crystal in my window with the sun shining on it. The crystal slowing twists and turns and created rainbows all round my studio – they are magical – absolutely magical – I always stop in wonder and watch them dance around the room. I see the transparent wings of dragonflies, glistening in the sun – rainbow colors in their wings. It is glorious.”
"There are no two identical ways artwork can be viewed. There is no right or wrong when viewing artwork our minds need to be as open as a child’s, playing with colorful building blocks or choosing colors from a box of crayons filled with possibilities." - Christine Alfery
