An excerpt from the Curator’s Statement: The Art of the Story brings together four artists who have taken on the role of narrator in telling stories through their artwork . . . The artwork tells stories of their family histories, stories of other cultures, about art and healing, love, life and nature . . . Carolyn Mary Kleefeld’s work is about the spiritual meaning of life and through a combination of art and poetry she weaves her stories. Each of her works of art is paired with one of her poems. Carolyn is as comfortable in front of an easel which she sets up overlooking the Pacific Ocean from her home in Big Sur, as she is writing and publishing poems. She comes by way of telling stories naturally as a poet, writer and artist. For the exhibition, works were selected from her Lovers and Nature series.
