Artists communicate differently and I am so grateful for that. They write, draw, paint, cook, create plays or music, or they photograph their perception of people, places, things and attitudes around them. If our senses are open to their artistic communication, we "feel" things differently. We allow ourselves to be transported. Julia Cameron, author of "The Artist's Way," says it so very well, "Known or unknown, famous or anonymous, all art is an attempt to map the territory of the heart."
I visited exhibits this weekend during Look3, the Festival of Photograph in Charlottesville, Va. Walking into those galleries I felt I was saying, "I want to hear what you have to say. What is your story?" And looking intently at the photographs, I listened and heard and was inspired.
More information to come about the Festival, but today I hope you can find inspiration in the wonders of the world around you.
