My Installation

Summer photographs, watercolor, and encaustics... followed by Autumn



Winter with Zen Fountain, and some of my poetry

Another 3 day weekend of classes and I am in the home stretch - the final seminar class and then I will have completed the master of education degree, in arts and learning. This weekend we were able to share with our cohort the work we have done since we started the school program and it was to be a culmination of our journey; visually, verbally, and musically. It was the first time I was able to see all my work, framed and displayed as if I was having a solo gallery show. I was pleased with the results although I could add or subtract the number of pieces I include based on my hanging space. I used my display panels, and natural light rather than my lighting system. I added meditative music with cushions for sitting, and even a zen fountain so the sound of water contributed to the feeling of movement through space. I included several poems I had written, played tibetan and native american flute recordings, and tried to create a peaceful, meditative space for viewing my art. I can now look forward to the final graduation show which will be held the beginning of May and then hope to share this body of work in a gallery setting.


  1. Wow, Robin! I would love to have walked through your installation. It looks and sounds like it would have been a wonderful way to soak in your work. Congrats on being on that "home stretch". Give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back.


  2. Thanks for the support, Don. I will probably have to downsize for the graduation show, (won't know specifics until the next class weekend in April) but it sure was fun to see all 3 mediums hanging together.
