The Art Garden invites you to participate
in a Community Exhibit
that explores the theme[s] of
Uncertainty, Transitions and Change:
How it works:
How does uncertainty affect you?
What are some daily transitions you [and your family or friends] experience?
What changes do you wrestle with and/or embrace?

Pema Chodron (sorry for the missing umlauts) begins her book,
Living Beautifully: with Uncertainty and Change,
with this quote from Agnes de Mille:
“Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how. The moment you know how, you begin to die a little. The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.”
What role does ‘not knowing’ play in your creative process?
What images, stories, ideas and questions do you have about any or all of this?

Colorful and falling leaves here in Shelburne Falls
have an extraordinary beauty,
even as they herald colder weather to come.
Uneasiness, tension and deep anxiety are plaguing many
in these last weeks before our national election.
How do we weather all the
that we face?
