Our regular feature, Collection Rotation. Each month someone special organizes a mini “exhibition” from our collection works online. Today, please welcome writer and editor Anne Ray.
For a variety of reasons — the holiday season, the state of the world, the recent arrival of my third child — I currently find myself drawn to works that amplify feelings of peace, calm, and joy. These are a few that do that for me.
[This photograph has made an appearance in more than one previous Open Space feature, and while I hate to be repetitive, I just love the image. I can't help but see it as incredibly tender and sweet.]
