Lydia Street Gallery will host the closing reception for their tandem exhibitions: Melanie Hickerson's "Ribbon of Life," the ribbon that connects us all, breaking down the illusion that we are separate. Benné Rockett's "Repairing Nature" is beautiful, mourning and mending nature's wounds. Golden thread, gold leaf, encaustic made to resemble blue and white porcelain but referencing native grasses, juniper berries and conifer parts, fractured and glorious, with echoes of remembrances of magnolias to feed the spirit and okra to feed the soul.

Former Austinite, New Orleans native, and Yucatan transplant, Rockett, who trained was an artist and an art therapist, knows a thing or two about soul repair. Meanwhile, Hickerson is a former New York artist who will share some insights we can all apply to people's lives. Threads of music, dance and joy are interspersed in her vivid paintings, all the while facing the realities of the world around us.
