“Close to the Heart”

Someone on Hornby recently asked me to think about what it would be like to live life with an unguarded heart. It seems a foreign concept in this world where the socially acceptable answer to ‘how are you’ is usually nothing more honest than ‘I’m fine thanks, and you?’ But if anything in our society is proof that our hearts are still capable of vulnerability and openness, it is art. When by showcasing their work artists bravely let the public view the inner workings of their emotional lives, we experience the creations of their unguarded hearts. This privilege was apparent in the beautiful group show entitled “Close to the Heart” that just finished at the Gallery, where local artists presented pieces that were especially close to their hearts.
