Mennonite Arts Weekend 2014

It was an honor to be asked to present at the 2014 Mennonite Arts Weekend. The theme of the weekend and the accompanying exhibit was Touching Mystery. The slideshow I put together was titled Seen Slowly: Art Making, Urban Gardening, and the Amish Inkjet.

Even though I was pretty nervous about speaking, it ended up being a lot of fun. Everyone was very gracious, and I appreciated the chance to touch base with a few of my peers. Other visual artists presenting at the weekend were Sarah Boyts Yoder, Karen Thiessen, and Kristina Glick. It was a special treat for me to meet poet Jean Janzen, musician and hymn-wrangler Marilyn Houser Hamm, and the members of The Steel Wheels.
