Friday, July 16th marked the First Annual Membership Art Exhibit, "Dancing With The Muse" at the Rogue Gallery and Art Center. This is my contribution to the exhibit below. This is a "must see" show! As Liz Robinson wrote in these poems especially for this occasion:
Pat Blair's Hayfield
by Liz Robinson
Six hay bales
rolling over the gold grass hills
rounded hay bales
leaping their own shadows
down and pounding
in watercolor movements
scattered by the benevolent hand of the goddess of harvest hay
rolling leaping rounding down the midsummer day
ROGUE GALLERY MEMBER'S EXHIBIT 2010 by Liz Robinson
hung on the walls
painted, printed, sculpted, sewn,
glazed, jeweled, woven, blown.
Not the usual minimal,
media shoulder to shoulder
crowding the space,
realized on white-washed walls
where art's hung out for fifty years.
Community on display--
new lives that join us,
decades--old lives, proud of the site
and insight gained in this gifted place.
The friendliest night,
greetings warm as smiles
and sun ripe tomatoes. "How are you?
How are the kids?"
Rogue Valley style.
