Reaching the Top of the Mountain

Meditation Mountain, Monoprint, collage & drawing
As I reflect on my journey with the production of the Amherst Biennial, it does feel that I've reached the top of the mountain and it has a times been a rocky journey. Juggling so many different sites and artists is no small challenge. The reward, of course is bringing it to fruition and painting the town with art. Also the public's response has been gratifying, as well as the media coverage. One reporter commented, "Are all these artists from the Valley? I had no idea there was so much talent here." This is one of the reasons I created the Biennial, to bring attention to the incredible amount of talent in this fertile valley and offer the artists a special platform to present the work in. I feel so fortunate to have 5 museums and all three colleges as hosts this time around.
