i’m jealous of “inspired”

So, when I say I’m jealous of INSPIRED, what I actually mean is that I’m jealous of curator Brian Downey, of The Arts Company in Nashville, for coming up with the concept of this brilliant show! Oh sure, it  just looks like a regular two-man show, but as we speak there are two special pieces covered in black paper waiting to be unveiled this Saturday night. Illustrator Julianna Swaney {Portland} and printmaker John Welles Bartlett {New York} will be showing their work side-by-side, but under that black paper are pieces created by each of them, completely inspired by the other… hence the name of the show! Sigh. So smart. I wish I could be in Nashville for the big reveal… someone take photos and send ‘em my way, ok? Thank you!

ps. not all of the images above will be in the show… they just happened to be a few of my favourites!

    This is great! Thank you so much for writing about the show! I will definitely send you some images from the opening. The “inspired” pieces are SO good and I can’t wait for everyone to see them. Thanks again…you’re the best!
