Art & Love Abides

Several things struck me deeply while producing this January/February issue of Art Access. Remembering all the challenges faced these past nine months, filled me with deep gratitude to be able to continue to do what I love—make this publication. For nearly three decades, it has been wonderful to work with artists, poets, writers, gallery owners, curators, museum staff, businesses, and publishing houses. All the encouragement, participation, and financial support have made this publication possible. Thank you dearly.   

Kirkland Arts Center’s listing from Lauren Lyddon reflects this moment in time perfectly:

“Art is many things to many people: an emotional outlet, an intellectual exercise, a political statement, a meditation, a cry for help, or an inquiry into the nature of being. This year we have been witnesses to history; we have had to adapt to survive. Artists have seen exhibitions and classes canceled, but still art abides.”

Finally, the image of beloveds, jeweler Steph Farber of LeRoy Jewelers and The Art Stop Gallery owner Phyllis Harrison, warms my heart. How wonderful that this husband and wife team continues to work together in their shared jewelery showroom and art storefront in Tacoma, Washington.

Blessed are we that art and love abides. Wishing you health, creativity, and happiness.
