A "Pause for Words".


by Leah McNaughton Lederman

My daughter curls in closer than a Joey

Thumb inserted pudgy fist covering her face.

She traces my fingernails one by one curving over the top

pushing the beds like elevator buttons.

I pretend not to notice that I'm not thinking

About brittle ridges uneven edges cracked, encroaching cuticles.

Knox gelatin Biotin Vitamin D Sally Hansen Diamond Strength--

I’ve never not

hid them.

She says, “I like your hands" and I tell her

I like hers. Don’t ever hide them.

January, 2023, Artists' Call Out

TwentyNorth Gallery, 2nd Friday Reception

1/13/23 6:30-8:30 PM

People’s Choice Awarded

Geometric art is the artwork of a non-representative nature

that uses straight and curved lines and color to form shapes,

patterns, and designs with more complex mathematical features and relationships.

Because geometric art lacks verbal messages,

it must be determined by the viewer based on his own subjectivity.

It is designed and created with lines, circles, squares, and rectangles

perfect or not, mostly in primary colors.

Geometric art design comes in various types, sizes, and shapes.

Geometric art had a cult following in the early Greek period of 900 BC,

as evident by concentric circles and other shapes on their vases and paintings.

You can register online.

Intake 1/5 and 1/6, 3 pm– 6 pm.

See you then!


Just a Note!

As seasons change and another year comes to close,

this is a time for reflection and time to look at the excitement ahead in 2023.
