Dear friends of Gallery&Studio,
As we all gather our strength and inner resources during this most difficult period, we offer our good wishes to you and our hopes that all this will end soon. In the meantime, we have opened a section on our website called Art in Quarantine. It is a pop-up virtual gallery for those who wish to share their creative response to this catastrophe with others. Please feel free to submit an image, poem or video.      Jeannie McCormack

Dreadful Spring

I never liked Spring.

The first deceiving breezes and suns,

The huge, discomfiting transformations,

The irrational climate,

Always made me weary.

Serpents raise their heads: men lower them.

The promise of the fixity of summer is all there is to it.

Broad, sure, muscular summer!

Its sweltering heat appoints the sun’s verticality over our heads,

And the vacuumed, blue, melanomanous light.

Yet all say, “Spring is beautiful. Isn’t it?”

“No,” I say, “Spring’s dreadful.”

For I know Spring mirrors our own tergiversations.
