The studio, a serene oasis, opens me to benevolent spirits. Enlightened by their time and space adventures, whispers that encourage, channel wisdom and stoke my imagination are their profound gifts. Receptive to my ghosts, they enlighten the heart, the mind, the soul, and thus the written word.
Marie is one of six In Print members to have her work featured at the Allegory Project, an art space and exhibition co-sponsored by the Art Matters Artist Coop and the Rockford Area Arts Council. The Allegory Project plans to have a theme that is explored in various art forms: painting and sculpture, photography, repurposed objects, and the spoken and written word.
Marie’s piece and the others have been framed at the gallery and are available for viewing from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The show space is on the northwest corner of Madison and Prairie Streets in Rockford.
