I know I would love to work with any kind of artifact or art that is historical or political in nature. It does not matter what type of artifacts I work with, it could be diaries, newspapers, letters or personal artifacts. Studying artifacts can tell you a lot about the person who owned them, the time they lived, and the society that surrounded them. graphic, left bracket

graphic, left bracket French novelist, Honoré de Balzac once said: “Passion is universal humanity. Without it religion, history, romance, and art would be useless.” I, too, believe that passion is key to a person’s success. Without our own personal passions, we cease to exist as an individual and become a lost soul in a larger society.

As a returning adult student, I quickly realized that over the years I had forgotten what it was like to have a passion for the arts. However, after spending many hours with a majority of the artists featured in this show, I now hold a great sense of pride and respect for them. Their professionalism and commitment to their art has rekindled my own passions for such things as: photography, painting, and even my needlework. I look forward to someday working with many of them, and hopefully featuring their work in a museum or gallery that I manage.

“Art does not solve problems but makes us aware of their existence. It opens our eyes to see and our brain to imagine.”
