I am pleased to be a part of the group art exhibit titled, Pilot Car. What is immediately striking and what draws you in is the diverse range of creative approaches, which includes but is not limited to painting, stone sculpture, found object masks, poetry, mixed media, and graphic design. The art fills the Banfill-Locke Center (an old house with its own unique character) with a vibrant energy. I created a piece specifically for this exhibit. It is inspired by one of Heid E. Erdrich’s poems called “Seven Mothers.” I encourage you to stop by as it is quite an amazing experience, and you won’t regret it. -Carolyn
