Sweeping the Graves Oct 19 - Dec 8th, 2018 Sun Trust Gallery, Durham, NC

The first showing of Sweeping the Graves opened in October and I had the chance to speak about the work at the second reception in November. The life altering, sacred experience of working for more than 20 years as a hospice social worker will forever be ingrained into my soul and this work is an attempt to honor those many people who allowed me through their grace, to walk alongside them as they left this earth. There is a book with direct quotes from patients and families and a few of my personal impressions that accompany this show as well as an interactive memorial piece that invites viewers to tie a white ribbon onto framed tree branches in honor of their loved ones. There will be a second showing of this work in Fairhope, Alabama in April of 2019.
