watershed – A critical point that marks a division or a change of course; a turning point: “a watershed in modern American history, a time that… forever changed American social attitudes” (Robert Reinhold).

Hey Ruby,
Here are my comments… take what you will. I do not claim to be an expert, just a girl with an opinion.
I love it! I think they will too!

I put together the press release for my exhibition last night. I always find this task one of the most daunting. I have soem sense of my sel as an artist when I am making my art, but to commit it to paper and speak about myself in the third person scares the crap out of me.

BRIDGET Z. SULLIVAN SOLO EXHIBITION: WATERSHED
MEMBERS GALLERY EXHIBITION AT SCHOOL 33 ART CENTER

BALTIMORE, MD: Bridget Z. Sullivan is pleased to announce the opening reception of her solo exhibition in Baltimore, WATERSHED at School 33 Art Center, a project of the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts. An opening celebration takes place Saturday, March 14, 2009 from 2-4 PM. The exhibition runs from March 12 through April 11, 2009. School 33 Art Center is located at 1427 Light Street Baltimore, MD 21230. The gallery is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday 10am-4pm, with extended hours on Thursdays from 10am-7pm and Saturdays 12-4pm. This exhibition is free and open to the public.

Through close observation presented in a form reminiscent of a naturalist’s journal, the mixed media digital work of Bridget Z. Sullivan reveals the artist’s search for meaning through her observation of life. Sullivan provides her viewers with intimate views of Nature using photography and scanography. Using water based pastels she draws and writes directly on her large digital prints. She juxtaposes the images on the wall like a collection of insects and bones revealing Nature’s secrets and details for extended, personal scientific study. Our survival depends on our willingness to know, value and understand the yeomen of Nature who live out their lives filtering the bay, decomposing the forest, and providing oxygen and food for our nourishment. It is only through thoughtful and careful study that all integral parts of Nature reveal themselves.

A watershed provides a turning point, a place for filtration of matter and sediment resulting in clarified water. Sullivan’s work embodies a place for the collection of ideas and clarification of vision while recounting the significance of the minutiae. The hydrologic cycle is the cycle of life.
