Conversation in blue series, "Emmeline & Grace"

The story of this installation is about a dialogue between a mother and a child in blue, blue being the most memorable, imaginable and emotional tone in my family history. The differences of cultural and social behavior in our society have grown as a gap in generations. The blue installation is in two parts; one side presents a mother as the old generation, and the other side presents a child as the new generation. I would like to invite the public to join me and examine where we stand and how we interact with one another in mundane human activity.

    Wonderful! Reminds me of the wind indicators they place on sails so that the sailor will know the angle to set them.

    I really enjoyed discussing your art today. It’s both thought provoking and very creative. It reminds me of life’s many paths.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
