Below the Surface


I am happy to be able to share the news that I have been accepted into my first juried exhibition. The show, entitled "Below the Surface", is a collaborative exhibition sponsored by the Printmaking Council of New Jersey and the Book Arts Roundtable. The original call stated that "entries may reflect the passive nature of what is below a surface, or the active process of scratching the surface of things to reveal hidden layers. Artists may choose to look into the layers of meaning, as they relate to our own personal experiences. How will the layers speak to you? What surface will you choose? In what way will you interpret what lies "below the surface."

Well, as you might imagine, this description spoke to me! I have two books in the exhibition and I will post them on my blog on Saturday, October 10...the day that the exhibit opens.

Dear Seth, Congratulations on such a wonderful exhibition and it will be the first of many to come. There is no one out there that has your personal touch for the human heart. The layers you gently arrange and edit offer an infinite numbers of interpretations. The dialogue can be instant and yet hum in the viewers brain like an old love song. I could not be happier for you and Yes send me your questionaire (sp) and I would be so honored to enter a serious collaboration in this digital project. I can get better photographs than my little Canon camera but that is down the road. Imagine and LIVE in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
