Oil Paintings by Winslow McCagg
Nebulous Beginnings and Strings by Alicia Cahalane Lewis


nebulous beginnings and strings is an artist’s lament. It is the song, long ago sung, of an artist’s relationship to earth. Asking us to grieve for a planet that recoils in today’s knowledge, the poetry and paintings return us to our place on an earth teaming with potential, direction, and compositional construction. The earth is stardust. And the burden of her grief is the weight of thousands of years of neglect. How do we create and envision a new earth? How do we return to her nebulous beginning?
