River's Edge gallery is pleased to present " Of The Muse" featuring the of Mary Trusel & Kyra Wojcik.
Meet the artists this friday, Nov 17th!
«Of the Muse» is an exhibit paying “homage” to the things, people, ideas and places that inspire an artist.
I am going to tell you the story of a muse for I am Kyra Wojik’s “Muse of the Gallery”.
For quite a while before this show Kyra began calling me peaches. It was interesting enough so I never protested plus it seemed right.
A few months after that she asked if I would pose for a painting with peaches.(the fruit). I agreed never knowing that it was about muses or part of a series.
The first in the series is a male handing Kyra’s muse peaches. The second in the series “The Gathering “ shows the muse gathering her own peaches while the third ,“Contemplation”, shows the attention the muse is giving to what was gathered and the final in the series shows the bountifulness of the harvest. When I saw this series I realized that It was my story and that of many others.
In my youth I did live my life with what others had chosen for me. After my life changed and I was on my own I had to start choosing my own “peaches” and then evaluating and doing what I felt what was right for me. I now gather my own harvest, my own life. It is a story of life.
Every artist has an inspiration from somewhere or someplace.
