Useful and Beautiful Gallery Show

It seems like half of my posts lately are apologizing for how absent I've been. Lately, my excuse has been preparations for Dragon*Con...the massive sci-fi/fandom convention in Atlanta next weekend. I have a back-log of entry ideas both original and given to me by others, and I hope to start working on those soon after this weekend.

In the mean time, I have to share with you an exciting event! At Big Hat Books in Indianapolis, there is going to be a Pre-Raphaelite-themed gallery exhibit. Artists of all sorts of mediums are coming together to share works inspired by the Brotherhood (and Sisterhood) of the Pre-Raphaelites.

Contributing artists include Michelle Merle Pace, Ivy Long, Heather Sleigtholm, and Delila Jemaiel, among many others. Artworks celebrate the Pre-Raphaelite's art directly, and also the concepts for which they stood.

Local artist Justin Cooper contributed this beautiful painting, entitled "Jane Burden."

Artist Julia Jeffrey contributed these two amazing artworks done specifically for the show.

The Invocation


Merle Pace's photographic interpretation of Ophelia. Beautiful!
Merle is also contributing three-dimensional works to the exhibit, including her one-of-a-kind lovely dolls.

So, if you happen to be in the Indianapolis area, stop by and visit this wonderful event!
