Opening reception- September 4th, 6-9pm
In cycling and running one learns to develop a cadence, a steady rhythm in motion, all moving parts and determination in synch to see keep at the task and all the way to the end. The consistent rhythm becomes meditative, as one settles into a oneness, despite possible difficulties, but all such extraneous distractions drift away and are kept at bay. It’s not always about speed, but a consistency and the achievement of the desired goal. There is a peace found in the time spent outdoors as one seemingly flies through space, a harmony the body all together in unison.
Our shared experience in the Covid-19 shutdown has dramatically increased some peoples concerns, anxiety, and stress, but also involvement in home life and community. For some there was a slowing down of socializing, productivity, and personal care, while others embraced the calm allowed for personal care of the mind, body, and soul, able to smell the blooming roses and take up backyard bird watching. Our “normal” patterns and movements greatly altered and new routines have been adopted as a result of the forced recalibration.
The impetuous was initially the kinetic activities, accessories, and surroundings but much has changed for us in the first half of the year and the concept seems to lend to embracing a wider notion of steady keeping at it.
Open to the public; please join us for the opening reception on Friday September 4th, 6-9pm for a first look and to meet the artists for personal insights into their unique work. Wine and light fare will be served.
