Narrative art isolates the artist (whether in words or dance or music or imagery) both inside and out. The artist becomes both observer and participant.

Humans have a magical power called imagination. Some say this capacity looks inward. Some say no, it is the universe outside that feeds this power. Both are infinite or each is infinite. To even get a glimpse of what’s available we (artists and audience) are required to charge headlong. What people must use in creating is imagination, curiosity and courage. And imagination must be trained and exercised like a muscle to be useful.

Melanie Hickerson wants to explore. Look at the world and use what she has, what she sees, and what she feels. She stretches to learn, practice, explore materials then apply with courage. Her mom always said to leave a place better than you found it. That includes this planet. Visual art can contribute information, entertainment and wonder. The social nature of our species benefits greatly from such objects and energy in this world.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until September 15.
