Greeted by Bigfoot
I keep telling Kayla she needs to become a travel agent. Every local attraction she hooks me up with is 100% fun and the William King Art Museum
was no exception. I'd been there before, but there was something
special about the company this time around. Mom, Kayla, baby D...plus
Bigfoot, who turned his head to greet us at the door.

My favorite exhibit didn't really photograph well, unfortunately. Witches and Wild Things by Lillian Trettin
consists of stunningly intricate and magical prints and collages that
detail both real and imagined Native American/Appalachian folklore.
If you go (and I highly
recommend it), you'll want to walk through this series twice. First,
just look with your eyes --- the images are labeled only by number, so
you can use your own imagination to guess what each one portrays. Then
pick up the laminated key to learn what the artist intended each image
to represent. The one shown here is "How the Yellowjacket Came to Be."
(Yes, I really did make
my aged mother and a six-month-old baby go through the exhibit twice.
They're never going anywhere with me again.)
As one final side note
--- I asked at the desk before going in and they said I could take
photos. I hope the artists don't mind! My notes aren't perfect, but I'm
pretty sure the artists in the collage (clockwise from upper left) are:
???, Mark Cline (creator of Foamhenge), Susana Esrequis, and Delia Flores.
