Artists’ Reception


“A Bond of Nature and Art an exhibition by Mother & Son” Artists’ Reception at the Mission Art Gallery by Artists Jackie Blair McSween and Murdoch McSween

My first exhibition! Or should I say our first exhibition, since this was a joint exhibition of my 13 year old son and I. I am a short on words as it has been and continues to be a very emotional experience for me. Somehow hanging ones art  for public display is a little like baring ones soul. I am hoping I will be able to express everything little clearer as time goes on. In the meantime, we did sell two paintings ! I am thankful to my children and family who helped out a great deal with making this possible and to everyone who came out to the reception.  The MAC gallery staff and volunteers have been just amazing and I would like to thank all of them.The exhibition is in the gallery for three weeks. I hope I will be able to share more over the next little while as the emotions settle.

Before I depart

You will have what you need

Irrelevant is hatred and fame

As is judgement and gold

Greatness in the Vastness –

There will be None

This manufactured cesspool

Is churning into stagnation

So, before I arrive

You will have what you need –
