Come in Close – SMALL WORKS BY JILL TIDERMAN
AT RAWLS MUSEUM ARTS, COURTLAND, VA
This was one seriously fun gallery opening! With all that positive energy I had a hard time settling down and zooming in on Jill’s fabulous little works. I had to step back, take a few moments with each little piece, climb into the frame and absorb the magic. Each little jewel has a story to tell. The show is up until the end of January. I hope you can take the time to go and visit. The gallery is located at 22376 Linden Street in Courtland, Virginia 23837 –
From her artist’s statement…
“I invite you to come in close and view a series of images I have captured through my daily walk. The intentional cropping of these photos and the cradle of more mat than picture forces the viewer to focus on a limited image. The repeated choice of what to keep and what to leave out creates the unified flow of this body of work. It is my wish that while you are up close and looking intimately at the photography that you might share a close thought, smile, breathe, or even a quick kiss with someone.
With heartfelt gratitude, jill”
