If you missed seeing the Mantra Trailer in North Carolina you have a second chance. Well it’s not exactly the real thing but the Weathersppon Art Museum is doing a marvelous installation of the project for
Our Subject Is You. It opens on June 19, 7 – 9:30 PM, at UNC-Greensboro.

I won’t be at the opening but I will be at the Weatherspoon for two public presentations of my work in August:

Artist’s Talk: Sherri Lynn Wood, Thursday, August 20, 5:30 pm

Workshop: Group Stitching Mantra (led by Sherri Lynn Wood), Saturday, August 22, 2-4 pm $10 members/$20 non-members. Contact t_dowell@uncg.edu to register. (More about the Group Stitching Mantra later!)

There is also an exhibition blog.

03/29/08 Graciously Accepting Rejection / Davidson College, Davidson, NC

I was at Davidson College the day after their Friday night NCAA win. It was cold and rainy and a large percentage of the student body was in Detroit but I still managed to get 19 people into the trailer. Their mantras were awesome.

I felt a new sense of integration while interacting with people who were less interested in participating. Graciously accepting rejection eased the experience of discomfort for me and the rejecting audience. Letting go of a personal sense of rejection freed me to encounter the next exchange with fewer defenses.
