Hanging Out with Joe
At the of age 69, Lucy Hilmer was named one of LensCulture’s EMERGING Talents for 2014. How often have I wondered where I fit. I’m not the “under 30” many consider emerging, and I’m not established either so hearing Lucy being considered “emerging” was music to my ears. Suddenly I had a nice little category I could perhaps fit into. Hand in hand with my personality, I like the sense of belonging.
Speaking of belonging, I stopped by Slate Gallery yesterday to see my little green house hanging next to Joe Fafard’s work and David Thauberger’s was just around the corner. Silly girl I know but I’m still thrilled to be shown along side these amazing artists. In addition to the many established Canadian artists represented, Slate Gallery also promotes the work of a number of emerging artists (that would be me :-). You can check them all out here XXX. A huge thank you to Gina and Kimberley for continuing to promote my work.
