They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

This spring SSAC has ushered in a new collaborative exhibit between our Visual Artists and Writers. Compelling and evocative images inspired stories and poetry of joy and sorrow, fear and longing.

Both the images and the accompanying writing will be shared in store and online.

The Woman Walking Into the Lake
Poem by Angela van Breemen

Freshwater siren
Beckons me
Her blue so vast
Cool water
Seeps inside my shoes
Enveloping my feet
In its chilly embrace

I take a step forward
Water swirling
Tugging at my clothes
It feels heavy
Like my heart
Weighed down by
Centuries of grief

I long to return
To the primordial pool
Whence life began
To surrender
To the never ending
Cycle of rebirth
Death and life again

I move deeper
Into the endless blue
Not conscious
Of what I intend to do
I am weary
Anxious to return
To the beginning

A mist arises
Swirling into shape
Anthropomorphic
Water Goddess
Her smile incandescent
She reassures me
It's not my time

Now back at shore
My soul is lighter
Energy replenished
I gaze once more
Upon the vast blue
I see her there
The woman walking
Into the lake
