Sue Bishop and Lisa L. Miller’s long-awaited exhibition “Points in Time” will be a springtime highlight of the library’s exhibit year in 2022.

The exhibition was originally planned for 2020, but was postponed twice due to Covid restrictions.

About her work Sue Bishop notes, “Simple joys are often overlooked and forgotten. As a visual artist, I have recorded some of those moments on canvas to share with you, the viewer.”

Included in this exhibition will be Sue Bishop’s painting “Invisible Horse,” of which she says, “Written in a fellow artist’s journal was this statement: ‘I ride an invisible horse / in an unknown landscape’.” That struck a chord within her, and she expressed that feeling through this painting.

Some paintings from Sue Bishop’s Point in Time series will be included in the show, as well. The series includes a number of paintings including “Like a Crow,” of which she says, “I personally enjoy crows.” Explaining this, she points to a quotation shared on social media by Contemplative Monk and other sources: ‘Be Like Crow / Collect Shiny Things / Hop Happily Down The Street / For No Apparent Reason / Scream Loudly When You See / Your Friends’.”

Lisa L. Miller’s painting “Colorful Century” will be in the exhibition. In sharing her inspiration she quotes Thomas Merton: “It is essential to experience all the times and moods of one good place.” In the 1990’s, she said, “A group of three artists and myself made journeys to Big Bend National Park to sketch and paint the incredible landscape that is found there. On one of our hikes in the Park I spent the morning photographing, drawing and painting the century plants that grew along the trail in an area close to a mountain known as “Casa Grande.” Capturing these images allowed me to experience one of the many times and moods of a good (great) place in Texas.”
