I am sooo excited! My piece from "Message from Swaziland" called "Do Not Turn Away" has been selected to show in Chicago's ARC Gallery show Bearing Witness: Art As Social Action
What an honor...and really it is a dream come true to show in a gallery like this. It just goes to show anything is possible if you open yourself up to the possibility! I am over the mooooon!! There are 18 artists total and I am so excited to see their works and the issues that they are bearing witness to.
I am so happy this piece was selected. It is one of the most powerful pieces in the series and very meaningful to me. She was the first mother I encountered in Swaziland and her eyes said to me "Do you see me, do you see this child? Do you see what is happening here? Do not turn away from what you see here". I do see and won't turn away. And now more people will see!
