Once upon a time, in a land West of the Ashley, there was a fabulous art show in a gallery called Fabulon. Annually, for three years Not Your Typical Love Story has battled commercialism, materialism, over consumption and narrow-minded views surrounding Valentine's Day. The news today is filled with injustice, hatefulness and intolerance. How can there be room for love? My paintings in the show cover same sex love, interracial love when it was banned in SC, and a family funeral. I'm glad to have been a part of this show. Who wants to be typical?
The show embraced love of outdoor spaces, all things nature, relationships, each other and simplicity. Maybe life isn't quite as devoid of love as it seems... The show is up until 3/1/2018 at which time Fabulon will take flight to digs unknown. Link to their website www.fabulonart.com/shows/
