Angela Lyonsmith on Display in the Nest
we weave this for each of you,
knowing some day you will fly,
taking your own dreams on your wings
I am honored to share this series of nests I began painting this year. I first learned of gather because I was exhibiting my artwork in the nest at Gather, now over three years later I am thankful to have contributed to the evolution of this space as a nurturing community resource and center of resilient creativity. This work honors my own nest and the nest we weave together for the children of our community.
