Passages are transitions, the in-between spaces that often don’t command our attention. But when we step back and look or listen more closely, they can gain in importance.

In music, phrases of sound are separated by rests; together marking time, creating movement and composition.

We could say much the same about life, joy and grief, ‘rites of passage,’ are balanced by quiet moments of contemplation.

Barbara Lee Smith and Joyce Watkins King were introduced to each other by mutual artist friends and curators in 2019. Perhaps it was because they both have a strong sense of materiality in their work, making compositions from fiber, fabric, and garment parts combined with ink, paint and stitch.

They enjoyed sharing their art and life experiences with one another, quickly realizing why their friends had introduced them. Even though the artists chose the title “Passages” for this exhibition prior to the global pandemic, the title still suits their work now, three years later.
