Dig Deep is a collection of paintings inspired by the Oklahoma landscape and my ancestors. Whenever I drive by a crumbling homestead, I think of the people who came to this often harsh environment and try to imagine what it must of been like to make a life here. I think of their strength, determination and resilience and suddenly whatever problems I am having seem to pale in comparison and I know that I, too, will make it through.
Please join me on September 16th from 7-9 at the Leslie Powell Gallery in Lawton, Oklahoma as I exhibit this collection as part of Kindred, a show with my fellow Oklahoma Women artists.
Also, this month I am the featured member of Fringe and will be giving an inside look inside my process all month long @FringeOk and of course, I can be found @MaryJamesKetch.
Much love, Mary
