Below: Mary Helen's announcement in the newspaper. Above: It Takes a Village--Prayer for the Maasai Warrior. This quilt was purchased by The Ohio State University (Newark Branch) for the John and Christine Warner Library. Click on the photos for larger views.
Click on the play button on the preceding post (below) first for Part I of the video. This is Part II of Whispers and Echoes--play it 2nd.
(Mary will post her written words later; she is resting now.)
It Will Reveal Itself....
Seek the inner depth of things,
and when they lead you to the edge of a great discovery,
discern whether it arises from a necessity of your being.
Either this discovery will strike you as superficial and you will shed it,
or it will reveal itself as intrinsic to you and grow into a strong and honest tool of your art.
Letters to a Young Poet
I hope you will feel as if you have had an opportunity to step into my world as an artist. The images and the circle of energies in the people in the room visiting my heart through my work will continue long after this earthly vessel enters a new dimension. I do not make a large number of works of art but by sharing the writings and finished images I am able to speak and share with viewers now and in the future. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
