Welcome to my exhibit Covenant, where I explore human worth, human experience and the observation so many human do not value the the gift they are to others and themselves. What is the value of human life, love, joy, and personal fulfillment? Henry David Thoreau once wrote, “Most people live lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.” What a sad commentary on human existence. My desire in this exhibition is to invite the viewer into the realm of reassurance, that there is a sacred dimension within each person, a sacredness based in the gift of God and the God’s desire for all of us, a story of God who has fallen in love with humanity. Covenant uses the gift of nature and human form to express the basic essence of value and beauty in creation and all those who dwell within it.
The exhibit was welcomed at the City Café in the Mount Vernon section of the Baltimore arts district, the home of many struggling yet determined, creative, gifted artists, men, women, GLBT, Black, White, Latino, Asian, a true collection, a tapestry of creative humanity. The opening reception was on June 6, 2006 from 6pm to 8pm. Café patrons among others guests enjoyed the fare the café provided for the event, explored the artwork and shared commentary on their impressions.
