“Becoming One” by Mandey Lund at Gather for August
How can you be caressed by the clouds? What can you do to be kissed by the sun? How can you make water shiver with delight? What does it feel like to be pregnant with the new earth? How can you catch fire and burn with passion? In “Becoming One”, a photo series and how-to guide by Mandey Lund, you will be taken through the world with new eyes and directed to seeing and experiencing these impossible tasks.
“Becoming One” can be seen at Gather on the square throughout August. Join the artist at the opening reception for the first Friday gallery walk on August 4th from 5-8pm at 116 N. Walnut on the square.
“I touch the earth and the earth touches me”- Hugh Prather
“You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on. Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers. Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again. Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting– over and over announcing your place in the family of things.”
“Wild Geese” by Mary Oliver
