Inner Sanctum Show

Inner Sanctum is my latest exhibition. It opened at Popopstudios in Nassau, Bahamas on October 8th, 2010. For this exhibition, John Cox and his team at Popopstudios transformed the space using curved walls to actually create the Inner Sanctum. Bold colors were chosen from the actual paintings to use on the various sections of the wall to really complement the softness of the paintings. Within the Inner Sanctum, a voice recording of my poems played and added another dimension to the experience. I also had on display a hard cover book with poems and paintings from the show.

Opening night went amazingly well. I had my entire family there including my sister Rose and my son Don from Canada, my daughter De’Shea and grandson Antonio from Florida and special friends that travelled from my island of Grand Bahama. A good crowd turned out including some of the country’s most revered artists. Guests took home a handmade origami lotus flower in a green pyramid box, a gift that I handmade for all to enjoy. The show will remain up until November 20th, 2010.

A very special thank-you to my husband Don for his sponsorship of the bar refreshments at the show and for his love and support of my art.  Thanks also to Paula Boyd Farrington and Dave Mackey for their creative assistance in creating my book of art and poetry.
