Alan Avery and the Buckhead Gallery Reflections

Allen Avery's opening last night was, as usual, a very classy event. I like that he has found Harriet Leibowitz -- another woman-- to represent. Her enormous, fabric-wrapped figures are digitally printed on plexiglass. The result is stunning. It made me want to run home and figure out what I had that could print on plexi! The show, however, was really about Pascal Pierme and his remarkable sculptures, most of them puzzles that are cleverly pieced together to hang on a wall. Wandering the gallery, I found some of the most fascinating views through the windows catching the reflections of a unique group of people who come out to a gallery in Buckhead on a Friday night.

Wake up, women!

I am living smack in the middle of a state where women are being denigrated in the Capitol by any number of legislators who would take away our rights. It fills me with a disgust that I cannot even express. Where are the women with backbone who will fight back and take away the offices of these men who do not deserve to be in any position of power anywhere. It is time for women to realize that they have a majority and that they don't have to be humiliated and controlled as if we were, yes, slaves. The slave mentality has not left the South. It has just shifted to women. Bravo, huh? We need to be angry, we need to get involved. This is not just about us. It is about our daughters, our granddaughters and the future. Where is your anger?
