Inspiration

Over the weekend I ran a 24 hour ultramarathon. I’ve received many comments on Facebook and just had to share this one:

I’m so proud of you. I told my son what you’ve been doing. He asked if you’re a hero just practicing. I said practicing for what? He said heroes practice just to practice because heroes make us want to be better like them.

That was so touching to read and really kept me going during the race. It made me think of the 2nd time that I did the Spartan Race World Championship in Killington and my friend sent me this message later:

Impressive! And you still had the spirit to smile at us as we passed over you on the gondola as you were decending from that hellish summit. *my son* said “John is my best friend” several times this weekend.

It feels so good to be an inspiration to these kids. Motivating them to go outdoors and be active and enjoy nature makes me feel so great. Our planet is beautiful, I wish that I had spent more time enjoying it as a child, but I feel even better inspiring other kids to do just that. Go outside!

 

Movis – Maverick Parallels

May Exhibits at Artworks

May Exhibitions at Artworks

May – June 2015

Main Gallery

Movis – Maverick Parallels

May 6– June 13  (Opening Reception – May 9, 6-8pm)

For this exhibition, the artists of MOVIS find expression in 2 and 3 dimensional works, as well as sound pieces, using a wide range of materials including paint, photography, bronze, steel, wood, video, knitted fiber, masking tape, hand-made paper and mesh.  John Goodyear offers a kinetic construction in which the images appear and disappear on rotatable parallel slats;  Margaret Johnson’s elegant prints show evidence of the hand moving in parallel gestures;  Eve Ingalls works across 2 and 3 dimensions in her large constructions that juxtapose the parallel prongs of a tuning fork and the scattered energy of the city;  Berendina Buist uses thread and fabric with parallels running across the rows and up and down the panels;  Rita Asch, MOVIS’ composer/musician, creates a lyrical sound piece inspired by the song of the thrush allowing the trills of the thrush to interact in parallel with the digitally-generated sound of the flute and the human voice;  photographer Frank Magalhaes creates a video stream of enhanced photographic images comprising a fantastical, parallel view of Umbria;  Susan Hockaday presents a parallel version of the Dymaxion World Map created by Buckminster Fuller, substituting botanical imagery for the usual land masses.; and Marsha Levin-Rojer offers a work from her Mandala series comprised of wooden beads suspended in parallel, as well as a tape installation where a set of parallel lines seems to remain constrained as long as it can before breaking out into a burst of energy.

Guest artists include Dana Stewart, whose carefully positioned animal sculptures create strong visual parallels; Jim Perry, whose tall wood totems gracefully and elegantly carry the parallel concept vertically from floor to ceiling; and Jerry Hirniak, whose photographic assemblages and video presentation offer parallel views of an historic 10 day period involving the civil rights movement.
