A statement from the artist:

“Mankind’s common bond, a basic love of all things positive at its very core, keeps us all tethered within a vast fabric of unseen thoughts, ideas, artistic expression, free thinking and a never–ending quest for the power of knowledge that is gained through these actions and experiences. I encourage you personally to seek these gifts with an open heart and a pure clarity of mind to find blessings of true enlightenment. Share these experiences with pride based on certainty that we are ALL adding to an ethereal pool of knowledge, and ultimately, heading in the same direction on this planet. Listen adamantly to the song that your soul wants YOU to sing aloud through any means necessary; they long to find their release and be heard by someone, somewhere. – Hatchetface”

There will be artist appearances at the Stein Gallery January through April. Each Saturday, artists form the exhibition will be in the Gallery from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.  Others will make appearances throughout the day on Weaver Free Saturdays (the first of each month), and on Tuesday evenings during the exhibition.
