I believe there is a purpose and plan for my life and if I listen carefully and move forward with what I hear, one day that purpose and plan will be fulfilled. I have never been one to try and push doors open but when an opportunity to walk through a door is presented and I have peace about it, I will certainly walk through it. May 2012 brought two such doors.
Door #1—I was offered the opportunity to oversee, or I supposed you say, “curate”, the “Gallery of Art” at the Chamber in Greensboro. At first I was a little hesitant because I have never done anything like this before, but then I reminded myself that it was a door of opportunity and I’d never know what was on the other side or where it would lead if I didn’t go through it. After the first few weeks, I am really excited about it. I have met some wonderful artists and set some goals to work toward. It will be exciting to see where it leads.
Door #2—I was asked to be a juror for an online contest by AbstractArtistGallery.org. The first jury process begins on June 2nd. Looking forward to this adventure as well!
