The opening art reception for my solo fiber art show was so wonderful. The show featured work six months to a year in the making. My show, Her Manifest, Her Frequency, HerVibe, was was perfectly scheduled for Women’s History Month.
To further celebrate, I hosted a unique mindfulness art workshop two days after the grand reception which attracted one of the largest audiences at the venue.
And then it happened.
The pandemic arrived and my art show which took months to create and hours to install was suddenly cancelled. Within a week’s time, I had to remove all of my art due to the coronavirus pandemic. The venue closed and so did my show.
I was truly saddened but I know of countless other artists experiencing the same. I thought of all those Broadway shows cancelled, the strip darkened. All those art festivals cancelled. The entire world came to a close in one globally collective moment.
A big sigh, indeed.
