Can I say Happy Aquarius Full Moon without sounding disingenuous? With the whole Mars Uranus/ North Node thingy squaring the Leo Sun/ Aquarius Moon dynamic, not sure that happy tells the whole story. Yet my chart is lit up like a quirky ( Aquarius) Christmas tree and I can report less tension after 2 weeks of sheer torture. Some of my other Aquarius Rising friends have also had their share of shitstorms recently. Still, the full moon in Aquarius bodes well for humanity so I will hope for a brighter tomorrow.
Having gotten some tasks completed today, I feel the urge to post some art and poetry. I saw a lovely exhibit recently. As luck would have it, the exhibit was extended an extra week. I did not know this until I arrived and noticed the exhibit that was featured online was still being displayed!
According to the Woodmere website, Hearing the Brush explores the relationship of art and poetry in the works of Warren and Jane Rohrer. Husband and wife inspired each other with words and visual forms. Born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Warren Rohrer (1927–1995) was one of Philadelphia’s leading abstract painters. His work is rooted in a deep sense of place and texture, whether the rolling hills of central Pennsylvania or the woods of the Wissahickon. Jane Rohrer (born 1928) grew up in Virginia. Her poetry is known for its observational qualities, a sense of sound, and a deeply felt emotional core. Her work has been published in the American Poetry Review, Parallels: Artists/Poets, and elsewhere.
What I quickly discovered is that both the painting and verse share my own creative sensibilities. I favor soft pastels and earth tones with strong use of color. I enjoy ( and occasionally compose) simple poetry that evokes emotion and elicits curiosity and awe. Perhaps it was no “accident” that the exhibit waited for me before closing up shop. In any case, I hope you enjoy my photos from my most recent sojourn at the local Art Museum. One more note, how fortunate am I to live so close to an Art Museum?
