 I'm thrilled to learn that these two will be included the upcoming exhibition "Thinning of the Veil," at Art Center East in Vernon, CT. This show intrigued me from the moment I saw the announcement, which invoked the words of Federico GarcĂ­a-Lorca, of arsenic lobster fame, to describe its theme of death, love, art, and the idea that the separation between the worlds of the living and the dead becomes more permeable at this time of year.

A middle-aged man looks back over his shoulder at a discarded tractor lurking in a patch of trees by a plowed field of stubble in late afternoon light.

Three women of different generations share a porch. The youngest swings from a pillar and looks into the picture at a river and city in the distance. Her mother, dressed in work clothes, is absorbed in hanging the laundry, while the grandmother, seated on the steps, looks out of the picture with a skeptical expression. A thundercloud looms in the background.
