passed away suddenly last week. We are all still stunned by this loss.
She was an extended member of my family, fellow artist, and (throughout my life) she was among one of my teachers and mentors.
It is my hope that one day there will be a retrospective of her work. She gave so much to the art community and to young budding artists. *(see my final note at the end)
Rest in Peace, dear Mary Jane. There is an empty place in our hearts.
Media include sculpture, painting, drawing, collage, assemblage, photography, and ceramics. Participants can meet the artists, see a body of their recent work, and talk with them about it in a casual atmosphere about their work and their creative process. In many instances, they will also get a chance to peek into working studios. Art will be offered for sale at each of the exhibition sites.
Actually, it is my hope that one day, all the the local Roanoke artists who have given birth to the Roanoke arts community will one-at-a-time be remembered in retrospectives, or even a book.
