I enjoyed the role as curator and going through the process of putting a show together. I definitely plan on doing more shows in the future.

The title for the show The Fiercest Light came from the quote that started this blog, simply replace red with art:
"Art is the most joyful and dreadful thing in the physical universe; it is the fiercest note, it is the highest light, it is the place where the walls of this world of ours wear the thinnest and something beyond burns through." -G.K. Chesterton
I chose the title because I wanted something that was strong, something that reflected how I felt about art, its strength and its fierceness.
I also ended up in the local newspaper because I was awarded Best of Show for Transitory (below) and won $500 thanks to The 209, a local consignment store and supporter of the arts in Union City. Which came at a very good time and helped fund my recent trip to Louisville for the SPE Midwest Regional Conference.
