Last weekend to see Julie Green's "Last Supper" Exhibit

I was astonished, educated and very moved by this exhibit at Northwestern's Block Gallery. Try to get there if you can. I have always been against the Death Penalty, so I wonder if this show caused anybody in favor to re-examine their pose.

I was especially drawn to many of the small plates embodying inmates who do not eat a last meal before execution or did not wish the contents to be made public.

We take so much for granted. I believed working with landscapes has taught me much about lack of control. But this exhibit takes that notion to a much deeper level.
