A great blue heron floated out of the marsh toward the Chesapeake Bay in Yorktown, Virginia. My brother watched... until he could not. In effortless flight the heron returned home. Gary died that evening. Death is harsh. I watched as my beloved brother floated toward death. Losing water, losing mass until finally he was gone. Floated away. This exhibit is a meditation on floating as a way of losing consciousness ... permanently and temporarily. Floating is sometimes a salve.
Muse Gallery is temporarily closed to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
Upcoming exhibitions have been postponed until it is safe to gather again in our space. As an artists' cooperative, our goal is to encourage and promote its members’ artistic expression. The artists whose shows were cancelled will have the opportunity to preview their artwork in the windows of the gallery. We are committed to rescheduling their monthly solo show.
We look forward to renewing our shared experience of art between our members, artists, patrons and our community.
