SOUL FUEL Inside-out Art Show
November 1 - November 30
“Inside-out” Art Show is show of photographs by Sarah Johnson, Winona Creative Laureate, that is hosted in the front windows of the Blue Heron Coffeehouse and Bluff Country Coop through November.
SOUL FUEL, a collection of photographs, originally went up at our beloved Blue Heron in March 2020. Just days later, our globe was in a pandemic and our lives changed forever. The Heron, like so many other businesses, had to close its doors to keep us safe. SOUL FUEL came down and was tucked into a box in my basement.
In the meantime, the need for SOUL FUEL became even more important than ever, and so even in this time of isolation I began seeking it out everywhere I went (which was hardly anywhere beyond my home and the trails). I found that SOUL FUEL can be found in the smallest and most ordinary of places. I learned that it is an essential need to seek out and intentionally ground myself in beauty even in the face of fear and grief. And even better when that beauty can be shared with others.
Here for you, then, is documentation of my last 7 months seeking out (and finding) SOUL FUEL. And again, as I asked in March, I ask you: What fuels YOUR soul now? And what are you doing to ground yourself during these turbulent times?
