Almost a year ago I found myself loading up both mine and my parents cars to make the 9+ hour trek to Navasota, TX for the next chapter in my life. At the time I knew I wanted to stay in Texas when it was all over, but I never knew the real impact this experience would have on me as both an artist and a person.
What started out as a 6-month residency in a place I had never heard of turned into a year-long residency in a place I called home. Over the course of this past year I have found myself calling both Navasota and Bryan/College Station home, and I am very sad to be leaving the Horlock House. But don’t fret, I will be staying close by – I have a new place in Bryan that I have been moving into this past week.
I wanted to take some time to reflect on the past year and what better way than in the form of photos.
I wanted to do a quick shout out to all the people who made this past year a huge success! City of Navasota, The Arts Council of Brazos Valley, Mic Check Poetry, The City of Navasota Maintenance crew, Guerilla Art Takeover, everyone in Downtown Bryan, WC Mercantile and the Sunday Knit Ladies, Brazos Valley Knitting Guild, and all of our visitors, buyers and friends who have been here through it all. Thank you so so much for a lovely year.
