Janelle Lynch: Day 3 / Entry #1: BPAC Artist-in-Residence Visit #2, May 9, 2013

Thursday, May 9, 2013

Throughout her year as Burchfield artist-in-residence, Janelle Lynch will share her thoughts and impressions with us as we share her journey into the spirit and work of Charles Burchfield.


Like CEB, Annie Dillard was also influenced by Thoreau. Her Pilgrim at Tinker Creek is, in part, a lesson on the art of seeing. Yesterday, before going into the BPAC archives, I read her thoughts about the remarkable world of insects. "...mysteries performed in broad daylight before our very eyes; we can see every details, and yet they are still mysteries." Thanks to Dillard--again--I saw this web as I entered the museum's door.
