  2. Liz A says:

    It’s always fun to visit exhibits and galleries with you … virtually

  3. “Public Facade, Private Despair” by Nancy Conboy is exquisite…so too the text (shouldn’t, but will confess I’ve felt just this fragile all year and will be away awhile then search for a doctor I can trust).

  4. fiona says:

    You are right Mo, the light is exquisite – and I really wanted to touch nearly all of them; hope you go to feel some of them!
    Nancy’s piece just reminds me that we can never know how another person is travelling…we need to be kind.

  5. There’s a lot of really impressive work here! I really enjoy Gloria Muddle’s work, but those gorgeous masks are my favorite; very powerful, as you said!

  6. Jane Bodnaruk says:

    wow, thanks for sharing Mo.

  7. Wendy Hatton says:
