Weave of Love is an exhibition that features two artists, Tressa Sularz and Mike Hazard. Tressa makes fiber art. Mike makes camera works. They are happily married and they live a good life making things. Art and life intertwine.

“When I weave, I weave love into every piece,” says Tressa.

“All my pictures are love stories,” says Mike.

Weave of Love will be on exhibit October 5 – 24, 2019, at Homewood Studios Gallery , 2400 Plymouth Avenue North, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55411. There will be an artists talk and poetry reading at 7pm, Tuesday October 8, and a closing reception with the artists present, 12pm – 2pm, Sunday October 20.

365 FRIENDS is inspired by Ko Un who writes a poem about every single person he has met in his life, and William Stafford who tried to write a poem every day, and Jim Denomie who painted a painting every day during 2005.

Stirred by these models, Mike Hazard has been posting pictures with stories to Facebook every day for eight years.

To begin every morning thinking good thoughts about a person is a luminous way to start the day.
