“Grace, my friends, demands nothing from us but that we shall await it with confidence and acknowledge it in gratitude.”

(General Loewenhielm / Isak Dinesen, Babette’s Feast)

When my 6-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Type I diabetes, I felt such darkness. When my step-father unexpectedly died in 2003, I was devastated. When my family fell apart, I was shattered. Without art’s delivery of grace at these moments, I doubt I could have survived it all.

As part of the launch of Bruun Studios’ digital platform on June 24, we are introducing a new program of online exhibitions, starting with Grace.

In the coming days, we will send out a proper announcement for the exhibition, but want to share a bit now.

Grace is the first of what we expect to be an ongoing program of online exhibitions, each featuring works from others along with art by me. Grace, for example, features a written introduction from art historian and art critic Kathy O’Dell, and works by six participants (Daniel Anastasiocirce dunnellHermine FordPhylicia GheeAlonzo LaMont, and Alexy Santos).

All the art offers stories of grace.

I encourage you to visit Grace once it opens—or better yet, join us on June 24 when we unveil our new Bruun Studios digital platform, sharing in a moment of grace together.
