In the Garden

By

Martha S. Heimbaugh

Show debuted
September 4 - 27, 2001
Prairie Village Arts Council and Municipal Offices' R. G. Endres Gallery
Prairie Village, Kansas

Special Note:  You may notice that this show debuted during September 2001, the month now sadly known as 911, when terrorists attacked New York City and Washington D.C..  After 911 occurred, I am told that visitors to this show pondered deeply the words and images presented below.  Even people who were in the building for other reasons stopped and walked through the entire show, reading and thinking.

The original goal of this show was to be visually pleasing and intellectually stimulating.  Word phrases containing positive, inspirational, and  thought-provoking messages, were linked with appropriate visual images.  A short poem opens the show, describing the garden, and the imagery surrounding the garden as, a metaphor to human life.  The viewer then proceeds to view artwork and read words as they "walk" the "garden".

In The Garden 2001 Martha S. Heimbaugh

Think of a garden, and you have the essence of living.

Reflected within the garden's boundaries are the joys, beauty, and failures of life.  Each garden is different, some needing more work than others.  While some gardens are blessed with fertile soil, water, and sunshine, other gardens struggle to survive.  All gardens require work.

The more work a garden receives, the more enduring is its spirit.  The work of a garden is unending.

Think of a garden, and you have a metaphor to human life.

Welcome to my garden.
