Our Collective Stories: A Shared Reflection by the Sky by Misty Ring

In 2020, Misty dedicated herself to creating a daily painting of Alberta's extraordinary skyline. "Little did I know that the arrival of COVID-19 in March would infuse my work with an entirely new significance, forever altering its meaning... In times that have tested our strength, (this collection of paintings) ignites a spark of hope and resilience. It reminds us to look upward, appreciate simple joys, and find solace in the unbreakable bonds we share as a community. We support one another, lend a helping hand in times of need, and share life's moments, regardless of our challenges."Misty was inspired to create a book that pairs her painted images with real stories contributed by others. "A book that is a cherished symbol of connection and is an important anthropological documentation of our collective experience. Whether that experience is good, bad, unique, devastating, or an unexpected silver lining, all stories are meaningful experiences and connections to share."We invite you to reflect back on your experiences of 2020 and contribute to this special book. Visit the gallery in April to view the exhibit and contribute your story in person, or share it online at mistyringart.com/sharemyexperience.
