The Path

It’s not a personal invitation nor is it a solo exhibition but it is my first time to be shown in a museum. Two works have been accepted into the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum juried show called “Socially Distant Art: Creativity in Lockdown”. I deliver the work to the museum in Connecticut at the beginning of April. By that time, Marie and I should be fully vaccinated and I consider this a fitting occasion to the end of the pandemic and my lockdown.


I have made no secret that my goal is to be in a museum. Admittedly an arbitrary goal but non-the-less, a goal that appealed to my ego. I have long thought that I had the hand skills to be in a museum but I did not know what my voice was. I have since found my voice and I have the conviction in what I have to say. Clearly this is still but a step on a long path but looking back on what I have accomplished, I have come a long way.


The thought does occur to me, once I have attained my goal of being in a museum, then what? Am I done? Does that change anything? We shall see.
