Every year I ride my bike 130 miles to raise money for a local camp for kids with cancer. I raffle a few pices of art for folks who contribute to Camp-Mak-A-Dream. Please consider supporting my ride.
Cathy Weber is widely recognized for her lovingly rendered visions of commonplace objects. Weber’s work takes the form of paintings, book art, quilts, illuminated manuscripts, cartographic elements and domestic items. The result is visual poetry that addresses spirit, emotion, nature and politics. She feels an urgency to use her artistic process to respond to war, injustice, greed and violence. The act of transforming the ordinary into the beautiful gives her comfort, hope, and support for meeting life’s challenges. “What best motivates me in my work is the potential to uncover, expose and describe the sacred,” Weber writes. “The fruits of the earth and the human heart offer the language. Working is the prayer.”
