the Marshall Fire Exhibit
The fire began in Boulder Country, Colo. on December 30, 2021;
within 2 days it burned over 6,000 acres and destroyed over a thousand homes. Two people died in the fire. On December 30, 2022, The Marshall Fire Art Exhibit will remember that day, with art from the community.
WHAT REMAINS AFTER A HELL STORM FIRE runs through an area is unfathomable. Fire appears capricious in what it consumes. Our impulse is to
try to make sense of the insensible, to look for a sign, a metaphor, anything to explain why this burned and not that. What remains is the regenerative power of nature and the resiliency of human beings to carry on.
Moon on the Wire
WHAT IS LEFT IN THE AFTERMATH
is a battlefield of ash with scattered precious mementos that become
sacred, simply because they exist.
The landscape, calm now under the serene snow, seems spent, at rest, waiting for the coming spring.
