Episode 149: You can’t deny that eyes are the window to the soul. Today I go on-site to see Bree Stallings’s solo exhibition, To be Seen & Celebrated. Bree & I chat about the project behind the exhibition, where she was commissioned to paint 100 individual eyeballs in memory of a loved one.
Bree gives a percentage of it to the residents Brookhill Village, an affordable housing community in Charlotte, for eye exams & glasses.
Episode 148: Today I talk to Andrea Rosen and Gillian Sewake about The Vermont Curators’ Group and their 2020 Vision Project. Its a really cool alliance of curators and they’ve got a great series of joint exhibitions planned throughout Vermont for 2020 .
Episode 99 : Today I talk to Dr. Vivian Endicott Barnett, working with the Neue Galerie in NYC. The exhibition explores the friendship of two German artists and their roles in creating the Expressionist movement.
Episode 80 : Today I talk to author, Lucy Paquette. My research brought me to her site. Her book The Hammock is about French painter, James Tissot. I had never heard of James Tissot, so I was eager to learn more. [I mispronounce his name at first ;)]. Apologies for the feedback sounds during the podcast.
Bad News (also known as The Parting), James Tissot

I was able to actually go to the gallery to see the exhibition for myself. This emotionally charged show literally brought tears to my eyes as it shows a unique take on the nature of struggle and the beauty that can result.
