Juror's Talk, Awards, Virtual Reception 

​Thursday, November 5, 5 to 8 

Grandmothers of young black men quake in fear when their grandsons are outside of the home.....will they return safely?
Or will they be stopped for a routine police check and have their actions misinterpreted?
Or worse, will they be shot in the back or choked to death for a minor offense?
Or shot in their own homes?
Or Lynched by Knee while crying out "Mama"?
All too often a grandmother’s worst fears come true.  Today is Mother's Day; I think of and honor all grief stricken grandmothers.

My large installation, "Assault On Orlando" has been invited by well known political exhibit

Celebrating 131 years, NAWA is the oldest women’s fine art organization in the country, is a vibrant community of professional women artists that strives to support its members and women artists at large through exhibitions, programs and education.

"A white supremacist, after being openly welcomed to a Bible study at Mother Emanuel church in Charleston, SC, killed 9 innocents. The relatives of those slain inside the historic African American church spoke directly to the accused gunman at his first court appearance. They did not turn to anger. Instead, they offered him forgiveness.  I ponder their collective spirit of Forgiving-ness in wonder."

My work has been taken down from this exhibit (after carefully hung by the Curator) 

and DISQUALIFIED for both awards and catalog due to the

1/2 " diameter rope hanging the noose to the ceiling above "Laura".

I am quite saddened by this action taken by the Executive Board of the Florida Artists ​Group
