As we all know, February is Black History Month and there are so many powerful events to honor the triumphs and struggles of generations of African Americans throughout US history. So much and so many to remember and revere…
For many people this month is also about love and Valentine’s Day, which has permeated the world… Love and friendship are celebrated these days in more countries and places… And once again, I find myself thinking how we can make this type of celebration more about their meaning and less about the consumption of stuff; for example, not buying balloons that will end up contaminating our oceans, or other products made of or wrapped in plastics… Making V-Day and our lives about our love for the Planet!
Below some exciting art shows and events:
I hope you can visit my show, TOPOGRAPHICAL VISIONS, at HallSpace, 950 Dorchester Ave, Dorchester MA (www.hallspace.org), on view until March 18th, 2023. The Opening Reception was FANTASTIC! Come see 40+ of my recent works including “Tree (Ego Death)”, painted on found canvas, featured in this post.
