On November 30th, I had the opportunity to be part of a lecture at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) on Arizona State University’s downtown Phoenix campus. Joined by fellow Geology of Spirit artists (Patrick O’Brien, photographer; Lois Roma-Deeley, poet; and Rosemarie Dombrowski, poet), the presentation was a sneak peek of our exhibition.

We had a full classroom of engaged photography, poetry and nature lovers! Lois, Patrick, Rosemarie, and I had a great time being together again. Our collective energy was so positive and uplifting. And as you can tell from the photo, we make each other laugh.

Each of us talked about our individual processes and how we approached the collaboration. The poets gave live readings of select poems, and Patrick and I shared some of the images to be included in the exhibition. This was my third presentation, and I think I’m starting to like it! :-)) Just as with my talk at Art Intersection, the very best part was that one-on-one with the audience and getting to hear their thoughts about the work.

Hope to see many of you at the opening. Here are the details:
