One of the particpating artists, Christine Sawicky will be exhibiting a work titled Just Father and I. She explained her inspiration for the piece. “I was walking on the pier and I was observing this father and son…I was very close to my father when I was little…they reminded me of my dad and I. Just hanging out…talking about life…while looking out at the ocean. It’s a big world out there…but the father and son seemed to just take in the beautiful ocean and the magnitude of what the world has to offer. In a world of their own…just the two of them.”
