Tuesday night I attended, for the first time, an Art Salon group that met for dinner and then to share their work. There were 6 people besides myself, and for my part I brought a Power Point presentation about my "Spider Woman" project. I received a fellowship from the Alden Dow Creativity Center in Northwood University in 2007 for the project, and the show was at the Midland Arts Center, in Midland, Michigan. In 2008 the Creative Spirit Center, also in Midland, Michigan, did the project as a community arts project. And in 2009 I was resident artist at the Henry Luce Center for the Arts at Wesley Theological in Washington, D.C.
Of six people at the Salon, one woman was from Washington, D.C. and knew Deborah Sokolove, the Director of the Luce Center, and another woman was from Midland, Michigan! What are the odds?
