Justina "Tina" Marino, Development
19 x 15
"This past winter, a great blue heron became a daily visitor to our FL rental on the bay. He hung out with us a little longer each day. My husband Ken would toss him some fish bait, and I refreshed a large mug of water for him every day. After a while, we felt a strong need to name our bird friend — and Jasper sounded just right. In my early morning walks on the beach, I would often run into Jasper — who was always a wonderful sight to behold."

- I loved her like the leaves
Mica Harrison Loosemore, Office of Admission
6.5 x 8.5 inches
Fiber and Mixed Media
"My grandmother Sue Beetham passed in January 2022. We were very close, and I am still learning how to mourn her passing. I was fortunate to attend Orien Arts Residency in August 2022 where I focused on creating a series of work to help process my grief. This piece is one in that series, titled after a poem of the same name by 7th century Japanese poet Kakinomoto no Hitomaro.
I loved her like the leaves,
The lush green leaves of spring
That pulled down the willows
on the bank’s edge
where we walked
while she was of this world."
- Pandemic Paranoia
Jay Marano, Office of the General Counsel
17 1/2 × 23 1/2
"I believe the photograph speaks for itself. While the subject can clearly see one has to wonder what they are thinking to resort to such extreme measures to stay clear of death and the impact a dreary world around them has on their mental health. Will anything ever be normal again after Covid-19? The answer is up to the individual."
