Emily Dickinson | The Spirit lasts, but in what mode / Lo Spirito persiste, ma in che modo..


The Spirit lasts - but in what mode -
Below, the Body speaks,
But as the Spirit furnishes -
Apart, it never talks -
The Music in the Violin
Does not emerge alone
But Arm in Arm with Touch, yet Touch
Alone - is not a Tune -

Sir. Joshua Reynolds PRA | Mrs. Lloyd | Smithsonian American Art Museum

Jane DeDecker | The Women's Suffrage Monument / Monumento al Suffragio Femminile


By Jane DeDecker / The concept of this proposed women’s monument was inspired by a letter from Elizabeth Cady Stanton to Lucretia Mott in which she wrote about the power of words and deeds:

"Every word we utter, every act we perform, waft unto innumerable circles, beyond".

I wanted to capture the collective energy from all women who have made this happen, as well as acknowledge that we still need to keep moving as we strive for equality.
When a water droplet impacts a body of water it pushes waves outward and rebounds upward as a smaller droplet. This droplet, called the daughter droplet - gains height - then falls back to the water in what is called a coalescent cascade. This describes the height, breadth, and lasting impact of the Suffragists’ work.
The composition centrally places Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton writing the Declaration of Sentiments. This friendship holds the beginning of the women’s movement, the drop of water coalescing its impact on US history. Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony writing the Sentiments forms a unified force that truly speaks of the oneness of their purpose.

Trung Cao | Realist painter


- "I’m a realist artist residing in the Vallejo, California. While oil is my favorite medium, I also work in graphite, charcoal, acrylic and gouache. My artwork reflects on themes of values and exquisite beauty, real or imaginary.
Through the lens of classical art admiration, and behind the aesthetic surface, many of my work critique on how we derive values and meanings from myth, folklore, legend, and the generality of storytelling".

Billy Kidd, 1980 | Fine art Photographer



Billy Kidd is an American self-taught photographer born in Panama City, Florida.

- "When I was six years old we sold everything in a garage sale.
I made an impressive $20 selling my He-Man action figures, Castle of Grayskull, G.I. Joe's and every little thing I had.
I thought it would be fun to put my money in a small wooden box and bury it with a long white string tied to it coming out of the dirt, it would be my buried treasure. I never found the money".
