As I was dreaming of tropical reefs, my artist friend Caroline Chen started a series of oil paintings based on Wuthering Heights. Now there's a story for you!
To complete the synchronicity, another studio artist friend shared a book with us that we had never heard of - Salmon Rushdie's Haroun and the Sea of Stories. As we both read through it, this passage caught our creative eyes...
“Different parts of the Ocean contained different sorts of stories, and as all the stories that had ever been told and many that were still in the process of being invented could be found here, the Ocean of the Streams of Story was in fact the biggest library in the universe. And because the stories were held here in fluid form, they retained the ability to change, to become new versions of themselves, to join up with other stories and so become yet other stories; so that unlike a library of books, the Ocean of the Streams of Story was much more than a storeroom of yarns. It was not dead, but alive.”
You are invited to an opening reception on Friday, Sept. 10 from 5-8 pm.
