The fourth of eight events of the “Beyond Beautiful: One Thousand Love letters” exhibition at Maryland Art Place and Area 405 January 17 to March 10 (www.onethousandloveletters.com), “Such Sweet Sorrow” is a free event sharing the balm of words at times of our greatest pain, when loss seems insurmountable and yet love shines bright.
“Such Sweet Sorrow” features storyteller and performer Maria Broom, whose energy infuses healing throughout the program. The event includes singer Simone Speed and a spotlight on Piper Shepard’s artwork on display, “Only Their Silhouettes,” a piece folding the symbolism of mourning flowers among other botanical specimens into a composition of loss and remembrance. Roberta’s House, a Family Grief Support Center, and Gilchrist, a leader in end-of-life care, are also honored during the program.
The 2:00-3:30pm reception period for this opening event is graced with jazz keyboardist George Spicka, and light fare provided by The Classic Catering People.
“Such Sweet Sorrow” is sponsored by Steve Salny, in memory of a lost loved one, Richard. Baltimore magazine serves as the media sponsor for the “Beyond Beautiful: One Thousand Love Letters” exhibition. For more details, visit www.onethousandloveletters.com.
