The seventh of eight events of the "Beyond Beautiful: One Thousand Love letters
" exhibition at Maryland Art Place and Area 405, January 17 to March 10 (www.onethousandloveletters.com), "Love Thy Self" features sharing from those whose letters inspired drawings by Peter Bruun, testimonials of finding light for and toward one’s self. The event features singer-songwriter ellen cherry, who presents a series of songs on recovering one’s sense of self, and artist Phylicia Ghee, whose focus on mindfulness illuminates the lovable within each of us. Organizations that focus upon self-love and self-esteem within their communities, and whose community members contributed letters to the project, share their tales as part of the program: Sisters Together and Reaching (STAR) and the Men & Families Center.
The 5:30-6: 30 pm reception period for this opening event is graced with jazz keyboardist George Spicka, and light fare provided by The Classic Catering People.
