There are many ways to know the water. Through lines in your hands and icy water around your boots, on sunny days spent chasing zephyrs, or even from another’s words and pictures a world and years away. To the sailor, the seiner, or yachtsman, or scull, the simple curve of a wave can bring out the same sorrows and joys. All share pieces of the puzzle that is a place, just seen from different vantage points.
The images in this exhibit are taken from my own study of the sea. I want to show a glimpse of the shared experiences that are life on the water. Coming in to anchor at a quiet little cove, or the starry nights spent offshore with the wind blowing free. Despite all the reasons we have for letting go of the land, the sea is shared by us and breeds a kinship that is undeniable. The lull of the waves soothes all our hearts the same.
the art that goes with these ramblings will be on display at the Northwest Maritime Center starting this Thursday Oct 13th, see EVENTS page for details.
