Flowers in celebration

Do you remember Kari Gunther-Seymour? I do! She sent this bouquet celebrating 7 years of the gallery and the beginning of my sabbatical!

What a wonderful artist and what a wonderful human being. Kari was one of the first artists I worked with here at the gallery. She shipped in WAR GAMES, an amazing installation of interactive art games that pertained to our never ending war in Iraq, in the first year of the gallery. Kari is a life long peace activist whose son went to war. She has produced powerful bodies of work that deal with the tension between supported her son, and the troops, while abhorring the war.(go to the gallery website and check out the archives: Show #3 and show #15.)
