Spirit Books at Wisdom House

September 18, 2010-January 8, 2011

With the Spirit Books back home in the studio, it's a time to reflect on their exhibition at the Marie Louise Trichet Gallery at Wisdom House in Litchfield, CT from the installation on a warm September day to taking them home in between winter snowstorms. There was something about the intimacy of the gallery, and perhaps the spirit of the place itself, that made an energy from the books almost palpable in the room.

The exhibition opened with a gallery talk on September 18 and what will probably be the last hands-on viewing of the Spirit Books. Although I love to let people have the experience of turning the pages, I think the books are just too delicate to withstand much more. I am planning on coming up with a way to show the pages on a screen in the future.

With a heartfelt thank you to Sister Jo-Ann Ianotti, Art and Spirituality Coordinator, and Sister Rosemarie Greco, Administrator, for the warm welcome and the wonderful environment for contemplation and creativity they make available to so many.
