For this themed exhibit, I have chosen trees to illustrate the cycle of life in the midwest. Each cycle, or phase of life calls forth an image that evokes either strength and resilience, new life, fulfillment, or transition to a new adventure.
Similarly, each scene reminded me of a favorite piece of music. I could have used Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" to tie everything together, but instead I chose pieces that were either favorites from my piano-playing days, or had memories of a specific time in my life.
The underlying images are mine, photographic captures with some modifications. I found the snippets of sheet music on the internet, taking care to insure that the arrangement portrayed was in the public domain. The resulting works of art are copyrighted by me, with all rights reserved.
"The Four Seasons" exhibit is on display at Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oakbrook, Illinois, from November 7 through December 4, 2018. If you are in the area, you are invited to drop by for the Closing Reception on Tuesday, December 4 between 6 and 8 pm. The fotoMuses will be on hand to answer your questions and discuss our work. Admission to the Estate and the exhibit is free. Light refreshments will be served.
